When you’re running a medical facility designed to keep people out of the hospital, flawless scheduling is vital. Last year, when Women’s College Hospital was in the process of moving its outpatient operations to a new building in Toronto, the Centre for Healthcare Engineering (CHE), housed within the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE), helped them to re-think their schedule to see how they could improve their operations.
Graduating MASc student Stephan Trusevych, Professor Roy Kwon and Professor Emeritus Andrew Jardine recently published a paper, “Optimizing Critical Spare Parts and Location Based on the Conditional Value-at-Risk Criterion,” in Engineering Economist (April-June 2014). The work is generating considerable interest, including a mention in the current issue of Industrial Engineer.
