this is a reminder for Christina Büsing's talk with the title "Robust Strategic Planning for Mobile Medical Units" taking place today at 12:30 in the B-IT room 5053.2. Please find the details below
--- Abstract ---
Mobile medical units (MMUs) allow for an efficient medical coverage of sparsely populated, spacious areas. Unfortunately, flexibility comes at the price of a highly complex operation planning process. In this talk, we investigate the strategic planning of an MMU service by deciding where MMU operation sites should be set up and how often these should be serviced. To that end, we study the strategic planning problem for MMUs (SPMMU) – a capacitated set covering problem that includes existing practices and two types of patient demands: (i) steerable demands representing patients who seek health services through a centralized appointment system and can be steered to any treatment facility within a given consideration set and (ii) unsteerable demands representing walk-in patients who always visit the closest available treatment facility.
We propose an integer linear program for the SPMMU that can be solved via Benders decomposition and constraint generation. All our results transfer to the session-specific SPMMU and we evaluate our models in a computational study based on a set of instances generated from a rural primary care system in Germany. ----------------
Part of the programme of the research training group UnRAVeL is a series of lectures on the topics of UnRAVeL’s research thrusts algorithms and complexity, verification, logic and languages, and their application scenarios. Each lecture is given by one of the researchers involved in UnRAVeL.
This years topic is "Biggest Milestones - Research at Its Peak", UnRAVeL professors will present the most important milestone of their respective research.
All interested doctoral researchers and master students are invited to attend the UnRAVeL lecture series 2023 and engage in discussions with researchers and doctoral students.
Next week, Sebastian Trimpe is going to give a talk with the title "Event-Triggered Learning" We are looking forward to seeing you at the lectures. Kind regards, Jan-Christoph for the organisation committee
