These models are limited to FCFS, Poisson failure and exponential service times, similar to METRIC--based models.

It is observed that the performance of bi-directional paths are better in case of mixed nature of machine sequence and its performance is found to be better for FCFS rule.
These four policies are the FCFS, look-ahead, minimum processing time, and minimum total time policies.

Making this argument, the presentation does not state anywhere that, in effect, FCFS was announced for the allocation of spectrum for basic service operators or fixed line companies in 2001.
The one- man panel said Shourie did not notify the FCFS basis for allocating spectrum during his tenure.
Prior to January 7, 2008, the date of receipt of application in DoT was reckoned for the purpose of FCFS and after January 7, 2008, the date of compliance of LoI ( letter of intent) was reckoned for the purposes of FCFS.
Dana Ludlum, KidsPeace Elmsford FCFS Program Manager, said, "I am excited by the response of the community to the new program, and hopeful that in partnership with local foster parents and other community organizations, KidsPeace can make a real difference in the lives of kids in foster care.
