Question 5.5.

An arrival in a queue that reneges is one who

(Points : 4)

after joining the queue, becomes impatient and leaves.

refuses to join the queue because it is too long.

goes through the queue, but never returns.

jumps from one queue to another, trying to get through as quickly as possible.

Question 8.8.

A suburban specialty restaurant has developed a single drive-thru window. Customers order, pay, and pick up their food at the same window. Arrivals follow a Poisson distribution while service times follow an exponential distribution. If the average number of arrivals is 6 per hour and the service rate is 2 every 15 minutes, what is the average number of customers waiting in line behind the person being served?

service costs, arrival costs

facility costs, calling costs

calling cost, inventory costs

calling costs, waiting costs

Question 14.14.

One of the most significant benefits of PERT is that it forces the project manager to sit down and plan the project in great detail—and thus come to an understanding of relationships between the activities.
