Flow lines with limited buffers: Dekomposition approach
for exponential processing times
A flow line comprising M stations with finite buffers and exponential processing
times is decomposed into M subsystems, which are modelled with the help of a
single-server lost-arrival queueing model.
If no external arrival rate is entered, first algorithm 5.3 as described in
Buzacott/Shanthikumar (1993), Chapter 5, is used to compute the maximum throughput
of the flow line.
With known external arrival rate algorithm 5.1 as described in Buzacott/Shanthikumar
(1993), Chapter 5, is used to compute the work-in--process.
