The thesis focuses on a model that seeks to address patient scheduling step of the surgical scheduling process to determine the number of surgeries to perform in a given day. Specifically, provided a master schedule that provides a cyclic breakdown of total OR availability into specific daily allocations to each surgical specialty, we look to provide a scheduling policy for all surgeries that minimizes a combination of the lead time between patient request and surgery date, overtime in the ORs… CONTINUE READING
