The 110th anniversary of queueing theory: Its applications in the military
University of Defence, Strategic Research Institute, Belgrade
Cost-effective selection of new technologies and concepts of defense through social reforms and strategic orientations of Serbia in 21. century (MESTD - 47029)

Keywords: military application; queueing theory; simulation; modeling; logistics; combat; command & control; transient regime; overloading
The aim of the paper is to present selected examples of queueing theory applications to problems in the military and defence domain, to mark the 110th anniversary of queueing theory. The intention was to find and present more works from domestic authors published in a longer period in order to promote the theory in the domestic military and defence circles thus motivating future research related to waiting lines phenomena. In dealing with military queueing phenomena, researchers are usually faced with some specific requirements which involve a multidisciplinary approach. In the queueing theory community, it is recognized that solutions to queueing problems could be reached in three ways: by analytical, numerical and simulation methods. Not all queueing problems are solvable by analytics or by numerical mathematics and, for such problems in particular, simulation methodology is a resolving tool.
