Successful simulation in social services: two case studies

Successful simulation in social services: two case studies
Successful simulation in social services: two case studies
In this paper we briefly describe two studies undertaken with Hampshire Social Services. Both involved the use of discrete-event simulation to solve a genuine problem. Based on these studies, we compare the use of simulation in healthcare with its use in social care and discuss some differences between the two application areas. Not the least of these differences is the comparative success rate in implementation of the model results.

Abstract

In this paper we briefly describe two studies undertaken with Hampshire Social Services. Both involved the use of discrete-event simulation to solve a genuine problem. Based on these studies, we compare the use of simulation in healthcare with its use in social care and discuss some differences between the two application areas. Not the least of these differences is the comparative success rate in implementation of the model results.
