We were asked to look at patient flow in an Endoscopy Facility. This was the result.
A quick-build Pit To Port model using FlexSim. The model takes 3 minutes to build and 2 minutes to experiment with to find the best number of trucks to use.
The concept is very simple but the complexity is in the data and rules layers that we overlay.
This FlexSim simulation shows the effect that different levels of unplanned readmissions have on the elective patients and any subsequent queues.
It also highlights how simulation modelling can model and understand the implications of an activity or intervention without having to model the actual activity.
