Abstract : Some general results are derived for single-channel queues with Poisson input and state-dependent Erlang service times in view of the possible use of this model to approximate arbitrary M/G/1-like state-dependent queues in a manner similar to that suggested for M/G/1 by Kendall, and Kotiah, Thompson, and Waugh. Numerical procedures are indicated for the evaluation of steady-state probabilities, expected system sizes and waiting times, and parameter estimation. (Author)
