Description

In this simple model, widgets are processed at a warehouse for 30 days.  The widgets arrive at a rate of about once every two hours.  It takes a certain amount of time (1.8 hrs) to process each widget and ship it out, and only one widget can be processed at a time.

The model computes the fraction of time the processor is idle, and a probability distribution of how many widgets will be in the warehouse one month after they start arriving.
