Managing blood supply chain inventories using stochastic programming

Activity: Talk or presentation typesConference presentation

Description

Managing blood bag inventories is challenging due to the unpredictable nature of supply and demand, crossmatching requirements and the perishability of blood units. We present how stochastic programming can be employed to overcome this challenges and derive optimal control policies for blood unit inventories in a network of hospitals.
