Abstract

This project looked at a simple queuing system with three different due date distributions. For each task generated, a deadline was assigned. The server then served the most urgent task first, for a time-step, then reassessed the most urgent, and continued until all tasks were served. We have numerically simulated the due dates with the exponential, random, and triangular distributions. generated lead time profiles, and have compared the data with theoretical predictions to determine the accuracy of our method.
