Abstract

This Interactive Qualifying Project uses a system dynamics approach to capture the hectic events of a MASCAL. Using data from past events, a model was built and simulations run to mimic a real world MASCAL and then used to examine where bottle necks affected patient survival. Policies were introduced to the model in an attempt to reduce these bottle necks. Based on those simulations a set of recommendations was made describing which of those policies worked best for a MASCAL.
