Abstract

We study the steady state behaviour of a queueing system with transacting populations. The system consists of two parallel queues, one for each type of agent, and the agents arrive in the system according to a Poisson Process from two different populations. When both queues have at least one agent waiting, the pair of agents at the head of the queues are coordinated and then enter into a transaction which we refer to as a service. Once the service is completed, the pair of agents leaves the system allowing the next such pair of agents to enter into service. The proposed model has numerous practical applications which include the airport taxi stand, the order processing system for rare products etc.
