Tasks

An emergency room of a hospital in Sydney has one receptionist, one doctor, and one nurse on

duty. The emergency room opens 24 hours per day. Patients arrive at the emergency room

according to the probability distribution as given in Table Q1.1.

The attention needed by a patient who comes to the emergency room is defined by the following

probability distribution as shown in Table Q1.2.

arrivals (min) attention needed

Time between arrivals Probability Patient needs to see Probability

If a patient needs to see both the doctor and the nurse, he or she cannot see one before the other

that is, the patient must wait to see both together.

The length of the patient’s visit (in minute) is defined by the following probability distributions:

10 0.20 5 0.10 15 0.08

15 0.30 10 0.25 20 0.15

20 0.25 15 0.50 25 0.21

30 0.10 1.00 35 0.18

1.00 40 0.10

1.00

Tasks:

1) Simulate the arrival of 50 patients to the emergency room (assume there is no patient when

the simulation starts). (8.0 marks)

2) Compute the probability that a patient must wait and the average waiting time.

(3.0 marks)

3) Suppose the process continues with enough number of patients, what is the optimum

minimum number of simulation trials (i.e. number of patients)? (6.0 marks)

4) Based on the simulation results, does it appear that this system provides adequate patient

care? (3.0 marks)

The IEEE Association in Power Electronics (IAPE) is going to hold its annual conference

at the Hilton Hotel in Hong Kong in 2019. Based on historical data, the IAPE believes the

number of rooms it will need for its members attending the conference is normally distributed,

with a mean of 700 and a standard deviation of 120. The IAPE can reserve rooms now (one year

prior to the conference) for $120; however, for any rooms not reserved now, the cost will be at

the hotel’s regular room rate of $200. The IAPE guarantees the room rate of $120 to its members.

If its members reserve fewer than the number of rooms it reserves, IAPE must pay the hotel for

the difference with a discount, at the $80 room rate.

Tasks:

1) Using Crystal Ball, determine whether the IAPE should reserve 500, 600, 700, 800 or

900 rooms in advance to realize the lowest total cost. (10 marks)

2) Can you determine a more exact value for the number of rooms to reserve to minimize

cost? (10 marks)

National Australia Bank at city central is trying to determine whether it should install one or two

drive-through teller windows. The following probability distributions for arrival intervals and

Assume that in the two-server system, an arriving car will join the shorter queue. When the

queues are of equal length, there is a 50 – 50 chance the driver will enter the queue for either

window.

Tasks:

1) Simulate both the one- and two-teller systems. Computer the average queue length, waiting

time, and percentage utilization for each system. (10 marks)

2) Discuss your results in 1), and answer the minimal simulation trials and suggest the degree

to which they could be used to make a decision about which system to be employed.

(10 marks)

A new car registration and license issuing process for NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS)

is being tested in Wollongong city. During the peak demand hours of 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, there

is one customer arriving in average every 4 minutes (on average, according to an exponential

distribution).

Typically, 30% of the customers want to register their cars (only), 45% want to renew their

licenses (only), and 25% want to do both (register their cars and renew their licences).

The process is as follows:

Each customer gets into a line (with a maximum of 20 people allowed in that line).

Once the customer reaches the counter, he/she informs a clerk at the counter what he/ she

needs.

The time of this discussion with the clerk can be approximated by a normal distribution

3

Spring 2018 – ENGG953 – Tieling Zhang

with a mean time of 1.0 minute and a standard deviation of 0.5 minutes.

The clerk at the counter gives each customer a number and shows him/her where to sit

(there is plenty of room for customers to sit and wait).

Those who want to do both (register their cars and renew their licences) get their licence

renewed first.

There are specific officers dedicated to particular tasks, either licensing or registration:

o Sharon is the officer dedicated to process licence renewals and

o Peter is the officer dedicated to process car registrations.

Sharon processes a licence according to a normal distribution with a mean of 5.0

minutes and a standard deviation of 1.0 minute.

Peter processes a registration according to a uniform distribution with a minimum of 5.0

minutes and a maximum of 9.0 minutes.

1) Draw a flow diagram for the above process. (5 marks)

2) Develop a simulation model using SimQuick software for the peak time period (3-hour

time period); perform 400 simulations to determine: (12 marks)

• The overall average waiting time in the process for customers;

• the number of customers served during the 3-hour time peak period;

• the number of customers who have already seen the clerk at the counter but waiting to be

served at the end of the 3-hour peak period;

• the utilisation of these three employees, i.e.

o The clerk at the counter

o Sharon

o Peter

If the management is considering adding a new trained officer, Mary, who can renew licences as

well as process a car registration. Mary’s approach is to keep an eye on both the registration and

licencing queues and then serves the next person in the longer queue. The amount of time that

Mary processes either a licence renewal or a car registration can be approximated by the

following distribution:

3 4 5 6 7

registration for a car, y (min)

Probability, f(y) 0.15 0.30 0.25 0.20 0.10

Tasks:

1) Use SimQuick simulation model to decide whether or not the management team should

employ Mary (use 500 simulations). (4 marks)

2) How best should the Mary’s time be utilised if the management team decides to employ

her? (4 marks)

Problem 5 (15 marks)

In many instances the quality of the finished product is a function of the temperature and

pressure at which the chemical reactions take place.

It is to model the quality, Y, of a product as a function of temperature, x1 (F), and the pressure

x2 (psi) at which it is produced.

Four inspectors independently assign a quality score (%) to each sample and the quality, Y, is

evaluated by averaging the four (4) scores. The resultant data is given in the data table below.

Pressure, x2 (psi)

Temperature, x1

(F) 50 60 70

200 52.8 58.7 55.4 92.4 90.9 90.9 74.5 73 71.2

250 63.4 61.6 63.4 93.8 92.1 97.4 70.9 68.8 71.3

300 46.6 49.1 46.4 69.8 72.5 73.2 38.7 42.5 41.4

Tasks:

1) Specify algebraically the complete second order model for the data. (5 marks)

2) Use JMP to determine the best model. (5 marks)

3) Produce two bivariate plots: Product quality versus temperature (x1) and product quality

versus pressure (x2). Describe the shape of each graph and comment on what this

indicates about the adequacy of the possible linear model

Y = b + b1 x1+ b2 x2 + . (3 marks)

4) From the model obtained in 2), what temperature and/or pressure would you recommend?

(2 marks)
