Hi

I have a queuing system. The arrival data comes in Poisson distribution with Lambda = 2.22 and the service has the Exponential distribution with Lambda = 2.38. The question is how can I calculate the time of delay in the queue before the server.

Hi amq10,

Is this for homework, or what is this for?

Thanks.

Wait times will approach infinity when the average service time is greater than the average arrival interval.

Hi Tel2,

It is not a homework. This is a part of my simulation model. I have done a first model with real data, but I face problem to calculate the delay when I changed the model.

The numbers that I gave in the question is an example to make it clear.

Thanks

ozo posted a link to Kingman's formula which will give you the average delay.
All you need to do is plug in your means and standard deviations.
Poisson
mean = lambda, stddev = sqrt(lambda)

Exponential
mean = 1/lambda, stddev = 1/lambda (yes, they are the same).
