Queuing While we may have no experience in planning deliveries, ensuring proper logistics, or scheduling in a factory setting, most of us have stood in line at the store or waited for a table at a restaurant. Most chain establishments use queuing and scheduling techniques to ensure efficient customer service. Let’s use some simulations to see how professionals use data to make decisions. SLP Assignment Run the Waiting For a Table simulation at least six times. Run the sim at SLOW speed. Runs 1-3: Keep the tables and parties the same but adjust the “meal time.” Runs 4-6: Add another table, keep the parties the same and adjust “meal time” to the same as runs 1-3. Fill in the Table Below with the Values you used. Run # Tables Parties Meal time 1 Set a Number Set a Number One Meal Time 2 Same Number as Above Same Number as Above A Different Meal Time 3 Same Number as Above Same Number as Above A Third Meal Time In these Runs, the only thing that will change is Adding One Table 4 Add one Table to above Set a Number One Meal Time 5 Same Number of Tables Same Number as Above A Different Meal Time 6
