While one could find rich literature on various aspects of discrete event simulation (DES), it is typically presented in a format that is difficult to use or replicate by a layman.
One should attend this webinar because it is focused on examples from real hospital practice, not fictitious examples. All presented examples are illustrated using the powerful DES software ProcessModel by the instructor with years of hospital experience as a lead simulation consultant. His experience, in particular with DES, was presented in his widely cited book with more than 10,000 sales worldwide: Kolker, A., "Healthcare Management Engineering: What does this fancy word really mean?" SpringerBriefs, NY, 2012.
This book was used as the main text for the training course by the National Health System, the UK, as well as by the Lubar School of Business at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for the graduate course on Healthcare delivery systems and data analytics.
Why you should Attend:
Discrete event simulation (DES) is the most powerful methodology used in data analytics/OR. The following examples will be covered:
