Performance Measurement and Improvement of Healthcare Service Using Discrete Event Simulation in Bahir Dar Clinic


  • aregawi yemane industrial engineering, Faculty of mechanical and industrial engineering , bahirdar University ,bahirdar , Ethiopia

This paper deals with the service performance analysis and improvement using discrete event simulation has been used. The simulation of the health care has been done by arena master development 14-version software. The performance measurement for this study are patients output, service rate, service efficiency and it is directly related to waiting time of patients in each service station, work in progress, resource utilization. Simulation model was building for Bahir Dar clinic and then, prepared the proposed model for the system. Based on the simulation model run result, the output of the existing healthcare service system is low due to presence of bottlenecks on the service system. Moreover, the station with the largest queue and high resource utilization are identified as a bottleneck. The bottlenecks, which have identified are reduced by using reassigning the existing resources and add new resources and merging the similar services, which has under low resource utilization (nurses). Finally, the researchers have proposed a developed model from different scenarios. Moreover, the best scenario is developed by combining scenario 2 and 3. And then, service efficiency of the healthcare has increased by 9.86 percent, the work in progress (WIP) are reduced by 3 patients from the system and the service capacity of the system is increased 34 to 40 patients per day due to the reduction of bottleneck stations.

QoS Assurance for Service-Based Applications Using Discrete-Event Simulation

The new paradigm for distributed computing over the Internet is that of Web services. The goal of Web services is to achieve universal interoperability between applications by using standardized protocols and languages. One of the key ideas of the Web service paradigm is the ability of building complex and value-added service-based applications by composing preexisting services. For a service-b...

Performance Factors in Parallel Discrete Event Simulation

Performance is a key issue in parallel simulation. This paper proposes a standard approach for detailed performance analysis of parallel discrete event simulation. We developed it for our conservative simulation algorithm, but it can serve for parallelisation in general as well. The parallel overhead terms are introduced and model-dependency of the parallel speedup is expressed by the performan...

Performance Evaluation of Distributed Security Protocols Using Discrete Event Simulation

The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) that manages inter-domain routing on the Internet lacks security. Protective measures using public key cryptography introduce complexities and costs. To support authentication and other security functionality in large networks, we need public key infrastructures (PKIs). Protocols that distribute and validate certificates introduce additional complexities and co...
