# Bank Renege

Covers:

• Resources: Resource

• Condition events

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 at random times. Each customer has a certain patience. She 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.
