Workload minimization in re-entrant lines

G.M. Koole, S.A. Pot

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


This paper is concerned with workload minimization in re-entrant lines with exponential service times and pre-emptive control policies. Using a numerical algorithm called the power series algorithm we obtain nearly optimal policies for systems with up to 8 queues. We also improve considerably the implementation of the power series algorithm. © 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
