BUSY PERIOD CONTROL OF QUEUES BASED ON WAITING TIMES AT ARRIVALS

System maintenance and vehicular traffic control problems have motivated the queue control systems studied here. This article presents results for optimal assignment of servers or rejection of customers, on the basis of arriving customers' waiting times, when the objective function is the mean of a control penalty plus a variable such as busy period duration, number served in a busy period, or total delay to all customers in a busy period.
