The goal of this project was to improve the scheduling of surgical cases at UMass Memorial Medical Center (UMMMC). Interviews, past surgical data, and observations were analyzed to evaluate the current state of surgical scheduling procedures. An optimization tool was developed in Excel that uses integer programming to increase the operating room utilization to be more competitive with industry standard. Recommendations were provided to more efficiently schedule surgical cases in the future to reduce overtime costs and maximize value-added time.
