Numerical simulation analysis in the M/M/1 queue with working vacations and setup period

Le Li


We consider the customers’equilibrium strategic behavior in the M/M/1 queue with w orking vacations and setup period.
Based on the reward-cost structure, arriving customers can decide whether to join the system or balk. In this paper, we use numerical
examples to illustrate the eff ects of several parameters on the customers’ behavior for fully observable queues.
