What if analysis example

Based on the calender analysis example, we will reduce the number of resources for all shifts and see if the processing times are affected.

To do this, we will create an additional scenario by duplicating the original one:

In Scenario 1 the resources availability is:

 

Resource

Morning shift (6:00 am - 2:00 pm)

Day shift (2:00 pm - 10:00 pm)

Night shift (10:00 pm - 6:00 am)

Call center agent

In Scenario 2 the resources availability will be altered as follows:

We reduced Nurse, Fully equipped ambulance and Receptionist. We increased basic ambulance and quick attention vehicle.

Day shift (2:00 pm - 10:00 pm)

We run the what-if analysis including both scenarios.

As soon as the analysis is complete, the Results will display.

Color is used to emphasis differences between scenarios. Values that differ are highlighted in red.

 

The resources results show that the usage of resources increased, especially for the Nurse, now at full capacity. This gives us an idea that there will be delays and patients will be held waiting. The positive result is that costs are reduced.

 

Whatif6

 

Analyzing the outcomes we note that:

The completed tokens have been reduced. This means we are tending to less patients with this new resources distribution.

 

Whatif7

 

Waiting time has increased in several activities:

 

Whatif8

 

In the whole, this new scenario is not beneficial. The hospital cannot afford such high waiting times since it offers a health care service.

We recommend reverting the resources availability for Nurse and Ambulance to their original values, and changing the availability of other activities. Run the simulation again and examine the results.
