QUALITY CONTROL OF THE M/M/1 QUEUE.

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to integrate a quality control (inspection) procedure into a job shop manufacturing process described by an M/M/1 queue. Given a joint inspection and queueing system, an optimization problem for minimizing inspection and queueing related costs is formulated and resolved. Although few manufacturing processes can actually be represented as M/M/1 queues, such models are often used as first approximations because of their convenient analytical properties. The authors' choice of such a model was thus motivated primarily by the need to demonstrate a methodological approach for designing jointly inspection and queuing systems.
