UMass Memorial Health Care
Due to the increasing need to operate more efficiently in healthcare, clinics are seeking ways to improve patient flow as effectively as possible. Lean tools have been recently adapted for process improvement in this industry. The purpose of this project was to examine how discrete event simulation and other industrial engineering techniques can benefit the Weight Center at UMass Memorial Hospital in reducing non-value added process times, balancing resource utilization and other measures for attaining lean flow.
