Evaluation of the mean interdeparture time in tandem queueing systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The problem of exact evaluation of the mean customers interdeparture time in tandem systems of single-server queues with both infinite and finite buffers is considered. We give some general conditions for the interdeparture time to exist, and show how it can be calculated.
