Waiting Time Analysis in a Network of Exhaustive Polling Queues

We analyze a network of exhaustive polling queues with multiple products and multiple stations. We assume that external arrivals to the network follow a Poisson process, and that each station can be modeled as single server queue with exponentially distributed service times for each product. We develop a stochastic model to analyze this system and develop a procedure to estimate mean waiting times at each station under different exhaustive discipline.
