Building at the luck of the 1st variation, this significantly increased moment variation now contains 4 components. half I comprises the foundational recommendations, in addition to a brand new first bankruptcy that explains the primary position of queues in winning functionality research. half II offers the fundamentals of queueing conception in a hugely intelligible variety for the non-mathematician; little greater than high-school algebra being required. half III provides many sensible examples of the way PDQ could be utilized. The PDQ guide has been relegated to an appendix partly IV, besides recommendations to the workouts contained in every one chapter.
