A Production Inventory System with Service Time and Production Vacations

In this paper, we consider a production inventory system with service time and production vacations. Customers arrive in the system according to a Poisson process requiring service from a single server. The single production facility produces …


Slow Retrial Asymptotics for a Single Server Queue with Two-Way Communication and Markov Modulated Poisson Input

In this paper, we consider an MMPP/M/1/1 retrial queue where incoming fresh calls arrive at the server according to a Markov modulated Poisson process (MMPP). Upon arrival, an incoming call either occupies the server if it is idle or joins a …


Predicting the Outcome of a Tennis Tournament: Based on Both Data and Judgments

This paper is about predicting the outcome of tennis matches of the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) and the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) using both data and judgments. There are many factors that influence that outcome. An important …


Performance Modeling and Analysis of Broadcast Packets in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks

In this paper, we analyze the performance of a broadcast packet in a VANET with the slotted ALOHA protocol where locations of vehicles are modeled by a one-dimensional Poisson point process. We consider the packet delivery probability under a …


Extraction of Behavioural Requirements for Simulation-based Performance Evaluation of Manufacturing Systems

A simulation model enables manufacturers to accurately evaluate the performance of their manufacturing systems. A vital input to build simulation models of manufacturing systems is the system behaviour, which is modelled based on extensive data on …

About this journal

The Journal of Systems Science and Systems Engineering was founded by the Systems Engineering Society of China in 1992. Published quarterly, this international journal addresses the theory, methodology, and applications underlying systems science and systems engineering.

The mission of the journal is to foster new thinking and research to help decision-makers understand the mechanisms and complexity of economic, engineering, management, social, and technological systems. Moreover, the journal helps readers discover new developments in theory and practice that can improve the performance of systems.
