Abstract

Queueing network analysis can be a valuable tool to analyze network models. However, the vast number and diverse nature of the tools available to analyze a problem can often leave the uninitiated frustrated or bewildered––awash in concepts, terminology, and methods not encountered elsewhere. As a primer for queueing network analysis, this paper emphasizes essential concepts and terminology. Selection of analytical methods based on the type of queueing network is discussed. Analytical methods are demonstrated using numerous examples and references for further study into advanced analysis are included throughout.
