PEPA Queues is a formalism that augments queueing networks with customers that have behavioural characteristics, as defined by PEPA components. PEPA Queues suffer from the traditional state-space explosion that affects both closed queueing networks and PEPA models. We discuss a possible solution to this with a continuous state-space approximation that allows us to derive an underlying mathematical model based on ordinary differential equations from a PEPA Queues model.
