A counter with a random service time and customers who renege. Based on the program bank08.py from TheBank tutorial of SimPy 2. (KGM)
This example models a bank counter and customers arriving t random times. Each customer has a certain patience. It waits to get to the counter until she’s at the end of her tether. If she gets to the counter, she uses it for a while before releasing it.
New customers are created by the source process every few time steps.
