Recent work dealing with planning of complex facilities has proposed use of a recursive optimization-simulation approach. This technique takes advantage of the best features of both methods while minimizing the disadvantages of each method used alone. Here a mixed integer program generates staffing and facility plans and a simulation model evaluates their(More)
The overall planning problem of an ambulatory health care facility is often attacked using either linear programming or simulation models. This paper discusses each method and then describes a third method -- recursive modeling -- which capitalizes on the advantages and minimizes the disadvantages of the other two methods. Methods of variance reduction and(More)
