Abstract

We provide the n-channel extension of the unified workload capacity space bounds for standard parallel processing models with minimum-time, maximum-time, and single-target self-terminating stopping rules. This extension enables powerful generalizations of this approach to multiple stopping rules and any number of channels of interest. Mapping the bounds onto the unified capacity space enables a single plot to be used to compare the capacity coefficient values to the upper and lower bounds on standard parallel processing in order to make direct inferences about extreme workload capacity.
