Abstract:This paper is written as a bachelor assignment of Applied Mathematics for the University of Twente. In this paper two problems of the uniform hand out system in the ZGT hospital are analysed. First, a model for an inventory problem is used to determine the optimal number of uniforms in the system. The results point to an influence of the behaviour of the employees on the system. Second, a queueing model is presented to analyse waiting times for the employees at the hand out servers. For multiple arrival rates, the required number of servers is determined. Both models are based on data of the two hospitals of ZGT: location Hengelo and location Almelo.
