We compare two models of a multi-server queueing system with state-dependent service rates and return probabilities. In both models, upon completing service, customers are delayed prior to possibly returning to service. In one model, the determination of whether a customer will return occurs immediately upon service completion, at the beginning of the delay. In the other, that determination is made at the end of the delay, capturing the idea that it takes time for the customer’s condition and needs to evolve or assess, before it becomes known whether a return to service is needed.

This study examines how duration of patent examination is affected by technological diversity of patent applications, using a sample of all pharmaceutical patent applications filed between 1985 and 2017 at China’s State Intellectual Property Office (SIPO). Patent examination is a crucial process to evaluate the patentability of technological inventions. To understand what factors influence patent examination duration can offer strategic insights for both patent applicants and patent system designers.
