1. Botica, Joshua. An Exposition of Little's Law .

Degree: 2014, California State University – San Marcos

Little???s law arises naturally in the modeling and analysis of queueing systems. It relates the long run average number of items in an input-output system to the long run average time spent in the system by each item. It is given implied validity and justification in many applications. This work contains a development of Little???s law through a sample-path analysis. This includes an introduction to Little???s law, a brief history of its evolution, a development of necessary and sufficient conditions for Little???s law to hold, and a formal statement and proof of Little???s law that can be applied to a variety of service disciplines. Finally, the utility of Little???s Law will be illustrated by applying it to some simple examples. Advisors/Committee Members: Puha, Amber (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: Little's law; input-output system; sample-path analysis; M/M/1 queue

2. Hultman, Jason. Fast-Track Queueing Models for Emergency Rooms .

Degree: 2015, California State University – San Marcos

Hospital emergency room patients often experience lengthy delays while waiting for an open bed and treatment. Some patients become frustrated and leave without being seen, which results in lost hospital revenue. Hospital administrators are responding with the introduction of new protocols to improve response times. One popular protocol goes by the name of Fast-Track. This thesis focuses on proposing a mathematical model for Fast-Track and using a combination of mathematical theory and simulation to analyze system performance. Prior efforts to analyze system performance have been data driven and taken place after implementation. The work here is predictive in nature. Through the application of theory and simulations, we demonstrate that an appropriately implemented Fast-Track protocol can reduce the average wait times for certain classes of patients without significantly impacting the average wait for other patient classes. We also suggest a revised protocol involving a threshold for treating Fast-Track patients that seems to improve efficiency. Advisors/Committee Members: Puha, Amber (advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: Emergency Room Operations; Minimizing Wait Time; Probabilistic Modeling; Fast-Track; Triage Models; Computer Simulation
