Lecture 22

Carwash Simulation

- A queue is an ordered, linear data structure
- New items are added at the rear end
- Items are removed from the front end
- It’s a “first-in, first-out” (FIFO) structure

- Queue operations
- Enqueue – add an item to the rear end
- Dequeue – remove the front item
- Peek – get the content of the top item

- A carwash station can wash one car at a time
- Time needed to wash a car is measured in seconds

- Cars may arrive at any given second
- A probability can be assumed

- Cars arrived when the washer is busy have to wait in line
- First-come, first-served

- The goal: find out the average waiting time for a given period of time (in seconds)

- Input
- Time needed to wash one car
- The probability that a new customer arrives at any given second
- The total length of time to be simulated

- Output
- Car arrival and leaving history
- Number of customers serviced
- Average time that a customer spent in line during the simulation

- Objects relevant to the carwash problem
- A collection of cars: CarQueue
- Car
- Washer

- Other objects used in the simulation
- Random arrival time generator: BooleanSource
- Average time calculator: Averager

- The application driver class: CarWashApp

- Key design concept
- Determine which properties of a real-world object are relevant to the problem at hand

- Car
- Arrival timestamp
- Sequence number

- CarQueue
- A linked list object is used as a queue
- Three operations
- enqueue, dequeue, isEmpty

- Washer
- Variables
- Time (in seconds) needed to wash a car
- Time left to finish washing the current car

- Operations
- Start washing
- set washTimeLeft to secondsForWash

- Reduce remaining time
- Decrement washTimeLeft if it is not zero

- Test if the washer is busy
- It’s busy if washTimeLeft is greater than zero

- Start washing

- Variables

- BooleanSource
- Variable: probability
- Operation: query
- returns true only if Math.random() < probability

- Averager
- Variables
- A count and a sum

- Operations
- addNumber: update both count and sum
- howManyNumbers: return count
- average: return sum/count

- Variables

- carWashSimulate
- Three parameters
- Time needed to wash a car
- Probability
- Total time

- Echo input parameters
- Validate parameters
- Processing car washing with a loop
- Output results

- Three parameters

- Within the loop
- Check if a new car arrives
- Check whether we can start washing another car
- That is if washer is not busy, and
- The queue is not empty

- Reduce the remaining time during washing a car
