A knapsack followed by a mixed integer program and discrete event simulation approach.Minimizing the makespan and the waiting time of stochastic surgeries duration schedule.A case study with real data and observation of the head surgeon's work.We outperform the head surgeon's method. A gain of about 100 operations/year even with fewer selections. This paper studies the problem of scheduling elective surgery patients in the orthopedic surgery division of Habib Bourguiba hospital in Tunisia. Two… CONTINUE READING
