Abstract

The RESearch Queueing Package Modeling Environment (RESQME) is an interactive, graphics-oriented workstation environment for iteratively constructing, running and analyzing models of resource contention systems. It is built on top of the RESearch Queueing Package (RESQ) which provides the functionality to evaluate extended queueing networks. In this paper we describe how to create a “pull” system, a manufacturing line with finite buffers, using the graphical interface and hierarchical modeling capability. This serves as an example of the kind of manufacturing submodels that can be created in this system and then used for higher-level modeling.
