Comparison of three supply distribution systems for medical and surgical supplies in the Veterans Administration Sierra Pacific Network
MetadataShow full item record
This project provides a case study for professors to use in the classroom environment to teach supply chain design, and supply chain inventory policies. It explores the supply chain distribution models being implemented at three Veteran Affairs health care systems within the Serra Pacific Network. Each system will include the main hospital and all of its off-site clinics. These three systems have different distribution models. In comparing and contrasting the distribution models, the goal is to find potential ways to improve efficiency, productivity, and reduce costs. While making specific recommendations (as to e.g., changes in stocking levels, or vendor agreements) for performance improvement is outside the scope of this project, the analysis based on sample data does suggest areas for further examination. However, with the difference in facility sizes, patient base, and complexity of services provided, "one fit" for all three facilities may not exist.
