This assessment is worth 5% of the total unit mark.
1.Submit your report as a softcopy to the submission box on the unit’s Moodle webpage. The logic flow diagram in Problem 2 can be handwritten but it must be attached to the report.
2.Submit the SIMUL8 file from Problem 3 in *.S8 format to the submission box on the unit‘s Moodle webpage.
Please use your student ID number as your report filename and *.S8 filename (e.g. 351363.S8)

Use the pseudorandom numbers generated in part a) to generate the length of service for the first three customers.
A bank is planning its requirements for ATMs (automated teller machines) in a new branch. There are spaces for up to six ATMs, not all of which have to be used. Three types of ATM can be purchased: general ATMs (giving cash balances, mini-statements and PIN change facilities), ATMs for paying money into accounts and ATMs that provide full account statements. The bank has a policy that customers should not wait for more than 5 minutes in the majority of cases (generally interpreted as 99%). Customers form different queues depending on their use of ATMs.
Develop a conceptual model for this problem outlining the objectives, inputs and outputs, model scope and level of detail (including a logic flow diagram), assumptions and simplifications.
In a candy shop, customers arrive at the shop according to an exponential distribution with mean time of 2 minutes. Cutomer service themselves by choosing the candy and filling their candy bag. The time of this self service follows a normal distribution with a mean of 3 minutes and a standard deviation of 2 minutes. Customers pay at one of two counters. If both counters are occupied, customers wait in one queue. The time to pay follows a normal distribution with a mean of 1 minute and a standard deviation of 0.4 minutes. Model this situation and run the simulation model for one hour, as well as predict the number of customers served. A hardcopy screenshot of your model should be provided in your report.
