Abstract: Two multi-objective minimization problems are posed, one for Erlang-C queues and one for Erlang-A queues. The objectives are to minimize the cost of added agents while also trying to optimize a quality of service measure. For the Erlang-C system we propose using the Conditional Value-at-Risk measure with waiting time as the loss function. We prove that this quality of service measure is integer convex in the number of servers. For the Erlang-A system we use the fraction of abandoning customers and some rate based weighting function as the service measure. Finally, a numerical comparison of the two system types is performed. The numerical results show the similarities between the two systems in terms of optimal points.
