My Trilogy of Articles on Surgery Times – Now Complete (Published)

The third of three papers on modeling, monitoring and control of surgery times has just been published. Links to all three papers are given below.

Most recent paper, published on line Dec. 13, 2021, introduces a new methodology to estimate operating-room utilization-rate for differently distributed surgery-times: http://10.1080/00207543.2021.2009141

Second paper, published on line December 03,  2020, introduces a new methodology to monitor surgery duration, using Statistical Process Control (SPC): https://doi.org/10.1002/qre.2813.

First paper, published on line, May 07, 2020, develops a new statistical model for surgery time: https://doi.org/10.1080/23737484.2020.1740066.

SPC Scheme to Monitor Surgery Duration (new article)

My new paper, published on line 03 December 2020. The paper introduces a new methodology to monitor surgery duration, using Statistical Process Control (SPC). It may be found at:  https://doi.org/10.1002/qre.2813.

This is the second in a series of three papers addressing surgery duration. The first paper, published on line 07 May 2020:

An explanatory bi-variate model for surgery-duration and its empirical validation

It may be found at: https://doi.org/10.1080/23737484.2020.1740066.

A third paper, addressing estimation of operating-room utilization-rate for differently-distributed surgery times, is under review.
