Networks of Queues with Blocking and Load Balancing
In a flexible manufacturing network, the flow of parts among work stations is subject to blocking due to limited station capacities. Generally use of “intelligent” routing can circumvent existing congestion and avoid congestion buildup. Little is known about modeling networks of queues with dynamic routings that are functions of the queue lengths in the network.
