According to the real practice of hospital outpatient operating rooms, the problem of process and capacity planning is analyzed by considering the rule of balancing and increasing the resource utilization; based on queuing theory, this paper brings out the outpatient operating room process upswing plan and establishes simulation models; then, this paper puts forward the total cost objective function of outpatient operating rooms, and uses FlexsimHC to solve a case with the model above, and then analyzes the system indicators and costs, and finally determines the most rational model. This paper can be well verified in outpatient operating room process and capacity planning, and provide a scientific quantitative basis for hospital management decision-making.
