Labour costs and queueing theory in retailing
European Journal of Operational Research p. 260- 267
In this paper approximation results for the M/G/s queueing model are used to derive an empirically verified shop type dependent non-homogeneous relation between labour volume and sales in retail trade. Moreover, we formulate the retailer's labour management as a formal minimization problem.
