Bank family of Datasets

The bank family of datasets are generated from a simplistic simulator, which simulates the queues in a series of banks. The simulator was constructed with the explicit purpose of generating a family of datasets for DELVE.

Customers come from several residential areas, choose their preferred bank depending on distances and have tasks of varying complexity, and various levels of patience. Each bank has several queues, that open and close according to demand. The tellers have various effectivities, and customers may change queue, if their patience expires. In the rej prototasks, the object is to predict the rate of rejections, ie the fraction of customers that are turned away from the bank because all the open tellers have full queues.
