Abstract: This thesis reviews and classifies the literature on the Buffer Allocation Problem under steady-state conditions and on performance evaluation approaches for queueing systems with time-dependent parameters. Subsequently, new performance evaluation approaches are developed. Finally, a local search algorithm for the derivation of time-dependent buffer allocations is proposed. The algorithm is based on numerically observed monotonicity properties of the system performance in the time-dependent buffer allocations. Numerical examples illustrate that time-dependent buffer allocations represent an adequate way of minimizing the average WIP in the flow line while achieving a desired service level.
