Abstract: The response time plays an important role in studying the various characteristics of queueing network models with feedback. Database recurrence relation is used to compute a sequence of response time of queueing network models with feedback. The sample means from those response times are used to estimate true mean response times. Further we construct some confidence intervals for mean response times. We investigate the accuracy of the different confidence intervals and the proposed estimators with the help of numerical simulation study.

Keywords: response time; coverage percentage; relative coverage; relative average length; feedback; confidence intervals.
