Royal Children’s Hospital Migration

Melbourne Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) is building a new hospital, and needs to migrate between 150 to 200 young patients from the old 8-floor building to the new one, with wards on 6 floors.

The complex simulation model had over 400 bed positions, 6 CAD drawings, over 1000 network points, and 21 elevators. Data tables controlled staff and patient numbers, and the migration routing and schedule.

Experimentation and analysis was carried out in-house.
