In this paper we present a systematic approach to the construction of bounds for the average costs in Markov chains with possibly infinitely many states. The technique used to prove the bounds is based on dynamic programming. Most performance characteristics of Markovian systems can be represented by the average costs for some appropriately chosen cost structure. Therefore, the approach can be used to generate bounds for relevant performance characteristics. The approach is demonstrated for the shortest queue model. It is shown how for this model several bounds for the mean waiting time can be constructed. We include numerical results to demonstrate the quality of these bounds
