Successive inter-arrival times in the queueing systems considered in the previous chapters form a renewal process. However, in many practical situations, especially in production and manufacturing systems, the inter-arrival times between jobs may not form a renewal process. In this chapter, we present versatile Markovian point processes (VMPP) introduced by Neuts (1974) that enable us to model arrival processes that may not be renewal.
