Chapter 22 Simulation with Process Model to accompany Operations Research Applications and Algorithms 4th edition by Wayne L Winston Copyright c 2004 Brooks Cole a division of Thomson Learning Inc Description In Chapter 9 we learned how to build simulation models of many different situations In this chapter we will explain how the powerful userfriendly simulation package Process Model can be used to simulate queuing systems 2 22 1 Simulating an M M 1 Queuing System After installing Process Model you can start it by selecting Start Programs Process Model You will see the process model screen appear The book contains a labeled diagram showing key icons Process Model is an easy to use software that allows you to simulate queuing systems To simulate a M M 1 queuing systems having 10 arrivals hour and 15 customers hour See the file MM1 igx on the cd from the book 3 The book walks you through the steps of creating the model During the simulation an on screen scoreboard tracks the following quantities Quality Processed Total Number of units to leave system Cycle Time Average time a unit spends in system Value Added Time Time which a unit spends in service Cost Per Unit If costs are associated with the resources the cost incurred per unit serviced is computed After completing the simulation you are asked if you want to view the output Sample output can be seen in the book 4 22 2 Simulating a M M 2 System Let us suppose that we had two telephone operators who can handle calls To modify the previous example we simply need to change the number of operators to 2 and ensure that up to 2 operators can be working on calls at the same time See the file MM2 igx The book contains the output of running this file for 1000 hours 5 22 3 A Series System This section uses Process Model to simulate a series queuing system The auto assembly line example used previously will be used 6 Example The last two things that are done to a car before its manufacture is complete are installing the
