The scope of discrete event simulation is wide. A new area is the simulation and optimization of clinical processes within Tecnomatix Plant Simulation. This ranges from classical material transprorts to the reduction of paitient waiting times up to the optimized shift and personal planning.
The attached model is only a very smal part of the fields adressed in hospital modelling, simulation and analysis. It shows the internal material transport run by an electro overhead monorail system eom.
