Clearly, one of the measures of performance of this system is to understand how the system processes individuals for treatment. In particular, we would like to try and limit the number of patients waiting for injury treatment at Station B.
The course Project (later in the course) will be to develop a simulation model of this system (using the software application Arena) to help determine measures of performance, such as:
Expected number of individuals in the emergency center at any given time;
The percentage of times Station A is shut down because of shortage of queueing space in front of Station B, and;
The expected completion time for a given individual (triage plus treatment).
However, for purposes of this exam, you are to MANUALLY execute the simulation using the random number streams below, in the following way:
As you did in Problem 1.27, you are to process several arrivals and several service completions for each of Station A and B. I will not tell you precisely how many; just begin the simulation long enough to hopefully build a queue in front of one (or both) of the stations. The purpose of this is to make sure you understand the logic and apply the steps in the proper sequence. You need not compile any of the above measures; obviously, you will need to run this for a longer time to do that.
Use the followinglist of random numbers between 0 and 1 in the simulation.
