Abstract : The waitingtimes of customers under three priority rules are compared. The first is the order of arrival rule. The second is the shortest processing time (within a generation) first and the third is longest processing time (within a generation) first. In particular the covariance matrix of the trivariate distribution of the equilibrium waitingtimes is obtained explicitly. (Author)
