Abstract

An approximation formula to one in M/M/1 queueing theory for hours in a queue is examined. Then it is extended to models M/D/1 and M/Ek/1 whereby wasted time or queue length is found to lie between two extremes. An empirical approximation to traffic intensity called utilization rate is used.
