Abstract:Medisch Spectrum Twente (MST), the top-clinical hospital of Enschede has a new building in use since July 2016. Along with the deployment of this new building, MST faces economic difficulties. MST started an efficiency program to reduce their costs. One of the main goals of the efficiency program is to save costs by reducing variability of processes. One of the key points here is the reduction of variability in bed utilization. Several projects are done to reduce this variability. One perspective is to balance the elective patient stream from the operating room to the nursing wards. To achieve this, we research the effect of the Master Surgery Schedule (MSS) on the bed occupation in the nursing wards. The research objective we use is: \To reduce variability in bed utilization by optimization of the Master Surgery Schedule."
