Queueing phenomena are encountered in several real-life situations. Prominent examples are service counters, elevators and traffic networks, but queueing effects also arise in supply chains, production systems and communication networks. In this course you'll learn basic mathematical models for analyzing congestion effects in terms of queue lengths and waiting times. You'll also develop insight in applications of such approaches for improving the design and performance of service operations.
