Areas we can help in

Our consulting services include developing and supporting development of computer simulation models using various modeling paradigms. We help organizations by using the most appropriate method for analyzing their system.

Policy Selection

Selecting a mixture of policies that maximum positive patient outcomes

Patient Flow

Improving patient flow to reduce waiting times and increase resource productivity

Business Process Improvement

Improving business processes to improve procedure to payment time, without increasing labor resources.

Resource Scheduling

Resource scheduling to meet demand in a cost effective manner, while considering random variation and turn-around-time requirements or goals.

CapEx vs. OpEx tradeoffs

Evaluating capital investment options that balance operating expenses to select the lowest cost option when considering the entire project lifecycle.

Simulation models can answer questions like…

Validate Service Design

There is so much variability and complexity in our system; I really don’t even know what my true bottlenecks are. What areas should I focus our process improvement efforts on to get the biggest increases in capacity?

Supply Cost vs. Labor Cost

If the outpatient surgery center invests in disposable devices, supply cost may increase, but my labor costs in cleaning and preparation will decrease. This may allow staff to see more patients increasing revenue. Will increase in revenue justify the increase in supply costs?

Laboratory Capacity Planning

Your laboratory is looking to increase capacity. Some equipment has a longer setup time, but larger capacity; others may have smaller batch sizes, but lower maintenance. What mix of equipment is a good match for a various test demand profile?

Patient Demand

How many recovery beds does my OR need to meet patient demand?

Why you need to use dynamic modeling & simulation?

Complexity

Too many factors and inter-dependencies make it impossible to represent in a spreadsheet.

Variability

You are most likely designing for the worst-case scenario by over capitalizing.

  • With the simulations developed, we were able to articulate (to management the impact of) splitting and combing task (and resources).... its not as simple as taking a 0.1 percent of someones time here and adding it there...not as straightforward as combing tasks as we have to includes travel times and other unpredictable activities.

  • Very hands on. You were very interactive and supportive of any questions that popped up during the course.
