In many-server systems it is crucial to staff the right number of servers so that targeted service levels are met. These staffing problems typically lead to constraint satisfaction problems that are difficult to solve. During the last decade, a powerful many-server asymptotic theory has been developed to solve such problems and optimal staffing rules are known to obey the square-root staffing principle. In this paper we develop many-server asymptotics in the so-called quality and efficiency driven regime, and present refinements to many-server asymptotics and square-root staffing for a Markovian queueing model with admission control and retrials.
