The study uses regression analysis and model with the help of SPSS in analyzing the data collected from the main queue which showed that on average 35 customers arrive every hour and the service rate is 34.5 customers per hour. The system utilization factor was 76.52%, the probability of zero customers waiting is 4.08; average number of customers waiting is 16.18 and average waiting time is 41.21 min.
