Near optimal control of queueing networks over a finite time horizon

Yoni Nazarathy, Gideon Weiss
2008 Annals of Operations Research  
We propose a novel approach for controlling queueing networks that minimizes weighted holding costs over a finite time horizon.  ...  The solution consists of piecewise constant allocations of the activities, with a finite number of breakpoints over the time horizon.  ...  In many situations one is interested in control of the network over a finite time horizon that attempts to minimize costs and maximize utility.  ...

A simple heuristic for load balancing in parallel processing networks with highly variable service time distributions

Luz A. Caudillo-Fuentes, David L. Kaufman, Mark E. Lewis
2009 Queueing systems  
At any point in time, a decision-maker may decide to move, at a cost, some number of jobs in one queue to the other. The goals of this paper are twofold.  ...  To this end, we consider a two-station proxy for the original system, where the service times are assumed to be exponential, but of one of two classes with different rates.  ...  control a system of two M/M/1 queues.  ...
