Abstract : In this work, a discrete time single server queueing system with arbitrary (finite) number of input streams, is considered. The input streams are assumed to be independent but successive arrivals in a single stream are not. More specifically, it is assumed that for each stream, arrivals are governed by an underlying finite state space Markov chain and that a visit to a state corresponds to one or none arrivals, according to a stationary mapping rule. The first in-first out service policy is adopted. For the system described above we develop a method to calculate the average number of customers in the queuing system. Then, the mean time that a customer spends in the system is calculated by using Little's theorem.
