Exponential Problems in Business Courses: The Translation of Time Units
Touchstone, Kathleen
e-Journal of Business Education and Scholarship of Teaching, v8 n2 p76-99 2014
This paper reviews a few applications of the exponential function used primarily in business courses. It shows that translating time units in which queuing problems are measured can be used to overcome some apparent differences between queuing (arrival) problems and survival (decay) problems. There is a cautionary note concerning the limitations of altering time units after the fact, particularly for survival-type problems, as well in the initial assignment of time units in the research process.
