Title:Performance Analysis of Many-server Queues with Reneging
Seminar:Seminar on Probability and its Application
Speaker:Weining Kang, University of Maryland
Motivated by problems of current relevance for call centers, we consider a queuing system with a single pool of N identical servers that process incoming customers who have generally distributed service requirements, and abandon the queue if their waiting time exceeds their so-called patience time. We derive first-order approximations of this system and its steady-state distribution, as the number of servers goes to infinity. We also discuss the implications of our analysis for the design of a call center and some counterexamples.
