Approximate analysis of load-dependent generally distributed queuing networks with low service time variability
In this paper, we present an approximate method for solution of load-dependent, closed queuing networks having general service time distributions with low variability. The proposed technique is an extension of Marie's (1980) method. In the methodology, conditional throughputs are obtained by an iterative procedure. The iterations are repeated until an invalid result is detected or no improvements are found. We demonstrate the performance of the technique with 10 different examples. On average, the solutions have 5% or lower deviations when compared to simulation results.
