Stochastic integer programming based algorithms for adaptable open block surgery scheduling

We develop algorithms for adaptable schedule problems with patient waiting time, surgeon waiting time, OR idle time and overtime costs. Open block surgery scheduling of multiple surgeons operating in multiple operating rooms (ORs) motivates the work. We investigate creating an “adaptable” schedule of surgeries under knowledge that this schedule will change (be rescheduled) during execution … Read more

Daily Scheduling of Nurses in Operating Suites

This paper provides a new multi-objective integer programming model for the daily scheduling of nurses in operating suites. The model is designed to assign nurses to di erent surgery cases based on their specialties and competency levels, subject to a series of hard and soft constraints related to nurse satisfaction, idle time, overtime, and job changes … Read more
