Can anyone help me with these 12 questions?
QUESTION 1

  1. A single-server queueing system has an average service time of 16 minutes per customer, which is exponentially distributed. The manager is thinking of converting to a system with a constant service time of 16 minutes. The arrival rate will remain the same. The effect will be to:
    increase the utilization factor.
    decrease the utilization factor.
    increase the average waiting time.
    decrease the average waiting time.
    not have any effect since the service time is unchanged.

QUESTION 4
  1. The Anderson Palmer Hospital would like to reduce the cost of its inventory by calculating the optimal order size for hypodermic needles. On average, the hospital uses 80 needles per month, the cost of placing an order is $14, and holding cost is estimated to be $1.20 per needle per year. Using the EOQ formula, the optimal order size is:
    about 40 needles.

    About 6 orders per year
    About 7 orders per year
    About 9 orders per year
    About 10 orders per year

    It increases proportionally.
    It decreases proportionally.
    It decreases exponentially.
    It does not change.

QUESTION 10
  1. As the ratio of arrival rate to service rate is increased, which of the following is likely?
    Utilization increases and customers must wait longer in the queue.
    Utilization is decreased because of the added strain on the system.
    The average number in the system decreases.
