Summary: We bound the expected maximum order statistics \(\{EX_{(n)}\}^{\infty}_{n=1}\) of a d.f. \(F_X\) both above and below. Our results have an interpretation in terms of stochastic orderings \(\leq _e\) and \(\leq_{we}\) defined as follows: \(F_X \leq_e F_Y\) iff \(EX_{(n)} \leq EY_{(n)}\) for all \(n\), and \(F_X \leq_{we} F_Y\) iff \(EX_{(n)} \leq EY_{(n)}\) for \(n\) sufficiently large. We apply our results on \(\leq_{we}\) to the end-to-end delay in a resequencing \(\mathrm{M}/\mathrm{G}/\infty\) queue
