Lean methods have become the standard approach to the resolution of design and operational issues in production and other systems. However, the lean approach has deficiencies. The deficiencies that simulation can address are presented, discussed and illustrated. These deficiencies include modeling and assessing the effects of variation, making use of all(More)
This article illustrates the integration of discrete event simulation into the capacity planning process of a tier two automobile supplier. In this application, the capacity planning process is able to generate a feasible schedule for the 30% of the product line which generates 80% of the business. The schedule is "feasible" based on the ability to produce(More)
Simulation can be used to validate the design or redesign of any complex system before it is implemented. Validation evidence is obtained if the simulation demonstrates that the system operation corresponds to its design. This evidence includes comparing both detailed system behavior and performance measure values to those stated in the design. The(More)

One goal of public-policy makers in general and health care managers in particular is the adoption and efficient utilization of electronic health record (EHR) systems throughout the health care industry. Consequently, this investigation focused on the effects of known antecedents of technology adoption on physician satisfaction with EHR technology and the(More)
Based on the serious problem of health care-associated infections and the understanding that patient crosscontamination is essentially preventable, opinions were sought from health care providers for insight into likely sources of crosscontamination in US hospitals, probable causes, and areas for additional investigation. Respondents indicated that(More)

Hospitals are facing increasing cost pressures due to cutbacks by Medicare, Medicaid, and managed-care organizations. There are also rising concerns that public policy may exacerbate the problem. In lieu of these concerns, nascent innovative ways of generating increased revenues are beginning to appear. In particular, a few hospitals have adopted retail(More)
