Queuing theory is the mathematical study of waiting lines, or queues. A queuing model is constructed so that queue lengths and waiting time can be predicted. A basic queuing system consists of an arrival process (how customers arrive at the queue, how many customers are present in total), the queue itself, and the service process for attending to those customers, and departures from the system. This paper investigates the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) service optimization in the banking industry using queuing modelling approach. Data were collected over a week and calculations are done on an average. Measurements were taken about arrival time and service time of customers who arrived at the bank within the period of investigation. In ATM, bank customers arrive randomly and the service time is also random. We use Little's theorem and M/M/1 queuing model to derive the arrival rate, service rate, utilization rate, waiting time in the queue.

This article (and all articles in the proceedings volume relating to the same conference) has been retracted by IOP Publishing following an extensive investigation in line with the COPE guidelines. This investigation has uncovered evidence of systematic manipulation of the publication process and considerable citation manipulation.
IOP Publishing respectfully requests that readers consider all work within this volume potentially unreliable, as the volume has not been through a credible peer review process.
IOP Publishing regrets that our usual quality checks did not identify these issues before publication, and have since put additional measures in place to try to prevent these issues from reoccurring. IOP Publishing wishes to credit anonymous whistleblowers and the Problematic Paper Screener  for bringing some of the above issues to our attention, prompting us to investigate further.

Theory and Applications
Queueing Systems: Theory and Applications (QUESTA) is a well-established journal focusing on queueing theory. The models considered concern resource sharing in a wide sense, particularly within a network context, with probability theory being the main analytic tool. QUESTA welcomes papers directly contained in the above scope as well as papers at the interface between queueing and adjacent areas. Specific topics covered by the journal are:
- Probabilistic modelling of queues, and their relation to Markov chains and processes, stationary processes, and point processes.
- Queueing network models inspired by operations management, operations research and engineering.
- The analysis of networks in which users compete for scarce resources, and the connection with game theory.
- The analysis of extreme events, and the connection with e.g. the actuarial sciences and risk theory.
- Models in which the network infrastructure is dynamic and randomly evolving, and the connection with stochastic geometry and random graph models.
- Advances in simulation methodology, e.g. in relation to rare event estimation and variance reduction, and the development of queueing-related computational techniques in general.
- The connection between data and queues, covering the use of data to optimally control queues, the estimation of input parameters from workload observations, machine learning aspects of queueing, etc.
The prospective areas of application include, but are not restricted to, production, storage and logistics, traffic and transportation systems, and computer and communication systems. Apart from regular research papers, the journal also solicits short communications, surveys, and papers on future research directions.
