Development of user interface for optimisation algorithm to aid national and international market analysis
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 300 000|
|Project duration||May 2018 - October 2018|
Purpose and goal
Sownder has developed an interactive user interface (GUI) that illustrates the potential and functionality of the decision support in an illustrative way. This interface shows an easy-to-understand way of how to minimise turnover time between two consecutive surgeries while maximising the utilisation rate of the surgery room and staff. Sownder has further developed an optimisation model for processes that schedule surgeries and staff so that production can be increased by 30%, alternatively production can be maintained with the introduction of a 6-hour working day.
Expected results and effects
The effects of the tool are that operations and staff planning are synchronised in the most optimal way possible, with the ability to evaluate in real time. Personnel planning surgeries now get a data-based tool that facilitates and streamlines scheduling. The ability to monitor cost-effectiveness in real-time by calculating staff resources in relation to production is accompanied by quick follow-up.
