The article presents three spreadsheet models, which integrate Monte Carlo approach with other decision support techniques, namely: forecasting methods, queuing theory and optimization. The authors indicate the most important reasons to introduce Monte Carlo approach into teaching process of simulation and spreadsheet engineering to undergraduate and(More)
This paper describes a system dynamics simulation model to analyse the relationship between age pyramid and the volume of patients arriving to hospital emergency departments located in a sub-region of Lower Silesia of Poland. The study relies on demographic and historical demand data, and the cohort forecasts for the population of the region. The results of(More)
This paper describes a hybrid simulation model that uses a system dynamics and discrete event simulation to study the influence of long-term population changes on the demand for healthcare services. A dynamic simulation model implements an aging chain approach to forecast the number of individuals who belong to their respective age-sex cohorts. The(More)
