Line Queue

Posted in Design by kmtom on January 2, 2011

Ever had to wait in line at the store? I did a lot of that this holiday season – between shopping at the mall to going to the grocery store 800 times for things my mom needed. I always try to get in the shortest/fastest line. Even when I’m shopping with my mom we will each get in two lines to ensure that we get out faster.

The engineerguy has taken a scientific look at lines to determine the best way to effectively manage the lines. He explains that a single queue for multiple registers is the most effective.

Just remember that the line you’re in is probably not the fastest…
