Decision Support Tool Promotes Army's Supply Chain Readiness

"DST gives materiel managers the capability to realign equipment on their property books to maximize readiness or fulfill high-priority requirements. A plan that once took days to create can now be completed in minutes. With just a few clicks of the mouse, property book officers can optimize their formation, synchronizing existing equipment on-hand against authorization."

AMC (Army Materiel Command) Restoring its Atrophied Repair Parts Inventory

Using a new system called the Decision Support Tool that Army Sustainment Command runs out of Rock Island Arsenal, Ill., “for the first time in my career, we can really see ourselves, and so we know where every single piece of equipment in the Army is, whether you are in the active component, the Reserve component or the National Guard. It’s never been that way; it’s very powerful.”

Simulation to Predict Effect of Citywide Events on Emergency Department Operations

January 2017 - Volume 2 - Issue 1 - p e008

Abstract Excerpt

Summary: Medical emergency preparedness has been an issue of medical relevance since the advent of hospital care. Studies have simulated emergency department (ED) overcrowding but not yet characterized effects of large-scale, planned events that drastically alter a city’s demography, such as in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania during the 2015 World Meeting of Families. A discrete event simulation of the ED at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia was designed and validated using past data. The model was used to predict the patient length of stay (LOS) and number of admitted patients if the arrival stream to the ED were to change by 50% from typical arrivals in either direction.

Q: Genera Via, how do you see the role as the Army’s Lead Materiel Integrator (LMI) evolving over the next few years?

A: “...LMI allows Army Materiel Command (AMC) and other logistics and materiel stakeholders to use an automated Decision Support Tool (DST) that interfaces with the Army Force Generation Synchronization Tool (AST) and Logistics Information Warehouse (LIW) to better optimize supply against demand…”

The Use of Queueing and Simulative Analyses to Improve an Overwhelmed Pharmacy Call Center

Like many others, the St. Louis Veterans Administration Medical Center (VAMC) Pharmacy help desk receives far more calls than can be processed by current staffing levels. The objective of the study is to improve pharmaceutical services provided by the call center, by using queueing theory and discrete event dynamic simulation to analyze incoming telephone traffic to the help desk.
