Sumario:We present an analysis of a queue model, specifically in a service station that has some traffic problems and productivity, which negatively affects the fill rate and sustainability of the company. Based on concepts of simulation and modeling of processes, supported in probability theory, mathematical statistics and queuing models, we obtained a computer model simulation that recreates the reality of the current system, generating vital statistics the decision making process. The research is descriptive into a pilot study of a traffic simulation project in one of the towns of the city of Barranquilla, Colombia and its interaction with the massive transportation system. The model allows a diagnostic the statistical behavior of supply stations supporting strategic decisions related to capacity.
