1 3. Process Flow Measures Auto-Moto Financial Services- The Old Process Auto-Moto receives 1,000 applications per month. In the old process, each application is handled in a single activity, with 20% of applications being approved. 500 were in the process at any time. Average flow time T = ? The firm recently implemented a new loan application process. In the new process, applicants go through an initial review and are divided into three categories. Discussion: How operational power destroys the walls of poverty. RT = I T = I/R = 500/1,000 months = 0.5 month or 15 days. Process I p = /month 200/month 800/month

Process Flow Measures New Process: The Same R, But smaller I Initial Review Subprocess A Review Subprocess B Review Accepted Rejected 1000/month 25% 50% 25% 70% 30% 90% 10% 800/month 200/month R = 1000 I = I IR + I A + I B = = 375 Inventory reduced to 375 from 500 in the old process. Since R is constant, therefore T has reduced. T = I/R = 375/1000 = month or 0.375(30) = days The new process has decreased the processing time from 15 days to days. I B = 150 I A = 25 I R = 200

Throughput R IR = 1,000 applications/month Average Inventory I IR = 200 applications T IR = 200/1,000 = 0.2 months = 6 days in the IR sub-process Average Flow Time for sub-process A. Throughput R A = 250 applications/month Average Inventory I A = 25 applications T A = 25/250 months = 0.1 months = 3 days in sub-process A. Average Flow Time for sub-process B. Throughput R B = 250 applications/month Average Inventory I B = 150 applications T B = 150/250 months = 0.6 months = 18 days in sub-proces B

8 3. Process Flow Measures Flow Time of the Accepted Applications Under the Original Process – the average time spent by an application in the process is 15 days (approved or rejected). In the new process: 15 days reduced to days. On average, how long does it take to approve an applicant? On average, how long does it take to reject an applicant? Accepted-A: IR, A Accepted-A(T) = = 9 Accepted-A = 17.5 % Accepted-B: IR, B Accepted-B(T) = = 24 Accepted-B = 2.5 % Average Flow time of an accepted application = [0.175(9)+0.025(24)] /( ) = The average flow time has reduced from 15 to In addition, the flow time of accepted applications has reduced to That is what the firm really cares about, the flow time of the accepted applications.

10 3. Process Flow Measures A hospital emergency room (ER) is currently organized so that all patients register through an initial check-in process. Each patient is seen by a doctor and then exits the process, either with a prescription or with admission to the hospital. 55 patients per hour arrive at the ER, 10% are admitted to the hospital and the rest will leave with a simple prescription. On average, 7 people are waiting to be registered and 34 are registered and waiting to see a doctor. The registration process takes, on average, 2 minutes per patient. Among patients who receive prescriptions, average time spent with a doctor is 5 minutes. Among those admitted to the hospital, average time is 30 minutes. Assume the process to be stable; that is, average inflow rate equals average outflow rate. ER1; Problem 3.4 MBPF

11 3. Process Flow Measures Directions o) Draw the flow process chart b) On average how long a patient spend in ER? c) On average how many patients are in ER? Hints: Compute flow time in buffer 1 Compute average activity time of Doctor Compute the average flow time in this process Compute average flow time for a simple prescription patient Compute average flow time for a potential admission patient Compute number of patients in Doctor activity Compute the average number of patients in the process.

15 3. Process Flow Measures A triage system has been proposed for the ER described in Exercise 3.4. As mentioned earlier, 55 patients per hour arrive at the ER. Patients will be registered as before and it takes an average of 2 minutes per patient. They will then be quickly examined by a nurse practitioner who will classify them as Simple Prescriptions or Potential Admits. Planners anticipate that the initial examination by triage nurses will take 3 minutes. They expect that, on average, 20 patients will be waiting to register and 5 will be waiting to be seen by the triage nurse. Planners expect eh Simple Prescriptions area to have, on average, 15 patients waiting to be seen. As before, once a patients turn come, each will take 5 minutes of a doctors time. The hospital anticipates that, on average, the emergency area will have only 1 patient waiting to be seen. As before, once that patients turn comes, he or she will take 30 minutes of a doctors time. Assume that, as before, 90% of all patients are Simple Prescriptions, assume, too, that the triage nurse is 100% accurate in making classifications. ER2; Problem 3.5 MBPF

20
20 3. Process Flow Measures Refer again to Exercise 3.5. Once the triage system is put in place, it performs quite close to expectations. All data conform to planners expectations except for one set-the classifications made by the nurse practitioner. Assume that the triage nurse has been sending 91% of all patients to the Simple Prescription area when in fact only 90% should have been so classified. The remaining 1% is discovered when transferred to the emergency area by a doctor. Assume all other information from Exercise 3.5 to be valid. ER3; Problem 3.6 MBPF

27 3. Process Flow Measures 80 patients per hour arrive at a hospital emergency room (ER). All patients first register through an initial registration process. On average there are 9 patients waiting in the Rg-Buffer. The registration process takes 6 minutes. Patients are then examined by a triage nurse practitioner;m. On average there are 2 patients waiting in the Tr-Buffer in front of the triage process, and the triage classification process takes 6 minutes. On average, 91% of the patients are sent to the Simple-prescription process and the remainder to Hospital-admission. On average, there are 5 patients waiting in the Simple-prescription buffer (Sp-Buffer) in front of this process. A physician spends 6 minutes on each patient in the Simple-prescription process. In addition, on average, 2 patients per hour are sent to the Hospital-admission buffer buffer (Hs-Buffer) after being examined for 6 minutes in the Simple prescription process. On average, 0.9 patients are waiting in the Hospital-admission buffer (Hs-Buffer). A physician spends 25 minutes on each patient in the Hospital-admits process.0 ER4; Problem 3.6b MBPF
