Radiology Model


Hi all,

I am creating a plant similate model for a hospital. There are three different types of patients and they they come in randomly. From here there are two buffers, after the second buffer there are two machines that the patients go to. After the second buffer there are 27 different types of scans that the patient could get and im not exactly sure how to incorporate those into my model. I was thinking a sorter but I am not sure.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated,


Thank you!

you could create a user defined attribute (or 27 attributes) to specify the scans for each patient.
In the exit controls of the buffers, you could then look into the scans of the patient and move them to the right room.
have a look in the method z_dEmp, this method you can use to distribute attribute values based on existing empirical distributions.
