MetadataShow full item record
An iterative approximation algorithm is presented for calculating the stationary queue size probabilities of tandem queueing systems subject to blocking. The algorithm combines a decomposition/aggregation technique with exact analysis for two node systems. It applies to tandem lines under various blocking disciplines where failure type servers with phase-type service and repair time distributions are in attendance.
