Can anyone give me suggestions how how they would go about writing the code for this problem. I am not looking for actual code just suggestions and or pseudo code algorithm?
Queue program: Develop a queue class using a linked list representation and use it in a program to simulate a check-out line at a supermarket. Customers arrive in random integer intervals of 1 to x minutes. Also, each customer is serviced in random integer intervals of 1 to x minutes. Request a value for x at the beginning of the run. Run the supermarket simulation for a 12-hour day (720 minutes) using the following algorithm:
Choose a random integer between 1 and x to determine the minute at which the first customer arrives.
At the first customerís arrival time:
Determine customerís service time (random integer from 1 to x)
Begin servicing the customer;
Schedule the arrival time of the next customer (random integer 1 to x added to the current time)
For each minute of the day:
If the next customer arrives,
Enqueue the customer;
Schedule the arrival time of the next customer;
If service was completed for the last customer:
Dequeue the next customer to be serviced;
Determine customerís service completion time;
At the end of the simulation, your program should print out the maximum number of customers in the queue at any one time, and the longest wait any one customer experienced.
