Utilization Measures
Problem:
The design and effective capacities for a local emergency facility are 300 and 260 patients per day,
respectively. Currently the emergency room processes 250 patients per day. Compute the design
and effective capacity utilization measures. (Round your answers to 1 decimal place, the tolerance
is +/-0.1)
Utilization Effective = ________________%, Utilization design = _________________%
What do the design and effective capacity utilization measures tell you?
The utilization rates show that the facility's current output is _____________________ its design
and effective capacities.
Solution:
Utilization effective and design equations are given as follow,
π‘ˆπ‘‘π‘–π‘™π‘–π‘§π‘Žπ‘‘π‘–π‘œπ‘› 𝐸𝑓𝑓𝑒𝑐𝑑𝑖𝑣𝑒 =
π΄π‘π‘‘π‘’π‘Žπ‘™ 𝑂𝑒𝑑𝑝𝑒𝑑 π‘…π‘Žπ‘‘π‘’
π΄π‘£π‘Žπ‘–π‘™π‘Žπ‘π‘™π‘’ 𝐸𝑓𝑓𝑒𝑐𝑑𝑖𝑣𝑒 πΆπ‘Žπ‘π‘Žπ‘π‘–π‘‘π‘¦
βˆ— 100
π‘ˆπ‘‘π‘–π‘™π‘–π‘§π‘Žπ‘‘π‘–π‘œπ‘› 𝐷𝑒𝑠𝑖𝑔𝑛 =
π΄π‘π‘‘π‘’π‘Žπ‘™ 𝑂𝑒𝑑𝑝𝑒𝑑 π‘…π‘Žπ‘‘π‘’
π΄π‘£π‘Žπ‘–π‘™π‘Žπ‘π‘™π‘’ 𝐷𝑒𝑠𝑖𝑔𝑛 πΆπ‘Žπ‘π‘Žπ‘π‘–π‘‘π‘¦
βˆ— 100
Where the actual output rate is equal to 250 patients per days, available effective capacity is equal
to 260 patients per day and available design capacity is equal to 300 patients per day.
So, substituting the values we have that
π‘Όπ’•π’Šπ’π’Šπ’›π’‚π’•π’Šπ’π’ π‘¬π’‡π’‡π’†π’„π’•π’Šπ’—π’† =
πŸπŸ“πŸŽ
πŸπŸ”πŸŽ
βˆ— 𝟏𝟎𝟎 = πŸ—πŸ”. 𝟐%
π‘Όπ’•π’Šπ’π’Šπ’›π’‚π’•π’Šπ’π’ π‘«π’†π’”π’Šπ’ˆπ’ =
πŸπŸ“πŸŽ
πŸ‘πŸŽπŸŽ
βˆ— 𝟏𝟎𝟎 = πŸ–πŸ‘. πŸ‘%
Then, utilization effective is 96.2% and utilization design is 83.3%
And as the utilization effective and utilization design are less than 100% we can conclude that:
The utilization rates show that the facility's current output is below its design and effective
capacities.
