Erlang Distribution

Erlang Statistical Distribution

 

General Characteristics

  • The Erlang distribution is, like its ‘parent’ distribution, a two-parameter family of continuous probability distributions.
  • It is a special case of Gamma distribution.

 

 

Specific Characteristics

Key Measures:

Mean, k

 

Range of values:

0 < x < ∞

 

Mean:

Mean = k

 

Standard Deviation, SD:

SD = (Mean) / √[k]

 

Application

Erlang distributions can be used; to calculate the time between failures, in telephone engineering to examine the number of calls that might be made simultaneously to call centers operators & in queuing theory.
