The queueing network analysis tool (QNAT). In this paper we describe QNAT, a software tool developed at Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India, for the analysis and simulation of queueing networks. Arbitrary configurations of open or closed networks of multi-server queues with infinite or finite capacity, fork-join queues with or without synchronization queues can be analyzed or simulated using QNAT. Queueing Networks with multiple classes of customers mall be specified with each class being a closed or an open class independently if there are finite capacity queues in the system, the type of blocking mechanism-transfer, repetitive service or rejection, can also be specified. For the applications where the accuracy of the results is important, an option to simulate the network is also provided. QNAT has proved to be a useful tool for the design of telecommunication systems, computer networks, modeling of industrial systems, design of banking systems, teaching courses and research on queueing theory etc. QNAT is a user-friendly analysis tool, developed with a Windows based Graphical User Interface (GUI). Mathematica forms the computing platform for QNAT due to its ability to perform symbolic computation
