The stochastic point or marked point process whereby the marks represent some aspect of the queueing customers or the state of the service stage or node and the points represent the times of customers leaving the server. This is contrasted with the departure process, which requires that the customers leave the entire queueing system for good. For example, in queues with feedback, the output process includes both the departure and feedback processes.
