How to predict process bottleneck?

I tried to use a simulation to predict process bottlenecks (description how).

Process is simple:

With load 1 new process instance per hour (during 30 simulation days), process report looks like:

When load is increased to 1 new process instance per 45 minutes, we can see process bottleneck:

I would appreciate any opinion.
