Main Article Content


A maximum likelihood estimator (MLE), a consistent asymptotically normal (CAN) estimator and asymptotic confidence limits for the expected number of customers in the system for a sequential two station, single server system with Poisson input and exponential service, where no queue is allowed in front of station 1 and atmost one customer is allowed to wait between the stations and with blocking are obtained.


CAN estimator - expected number of customers in the system - maximum likelihood estimator - multivariate central limit theorem - Slutsky theorem - tandem queue.
