This paper describes a stochastic model for Operating Room (OR) planning with two types of demand for surgery: elective surgery and emergency surgery. Elective cases can be planned ahead and have a patient-related cost depending on the surgery date. Emergency cases arrive randomly and have to be performed on the day of arrival. The planning problem consists in assigning elective cases to different periods over a planning horizon in order to minimize the sum of elective patient related costs and… CONTINUE READING
