• Lunchtime Hotdog Stand
– Open 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. daily
– Historical records show that approximately 210 customers/day visit the stand
– The time to fill a customer’s order is approximately 1.5 minutes, but is highly
variable

Video 4 – Assignments
• Assignment 1:
– Extend the Hotdog Stand model so that the stand is
open from 9:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. each day and
includes a “dinner rush” in addition to the lunch rush.
– You will need to first extend the arrival process by
adding the additional hours and corresponding arrival
rates. Use your knowledge of fast-food restaurants
and judgment to do this.
– Implement the corresponding arrival process and
update the resource schedule to support the new
arrival process
– Develop an experiment with responses for server
utilization, average and maximum times that
customers spend in the system, and average and
maximum numbers of customers in the system.

• Assignment 2:
– Update the manufacturing system model
developed in Video 01 to support orders
(for parts) arriving according to a given
schedule.
– The data is given in the Assignment 2
Data Excel Workbook.
– Assume that order arrivals can deviate
from their scheduled time by plus or
minus 10 minutes (uniformly distributed).
– Create an experiment with responses for
the average time parts (all types) spend
in the system and the number of parts
completed.
