Abstract
In 2014, the Canadian Joint Operational Command Operational Research and Analysis Team initiated the development of an analysis toolset to support non-combatant evacuation planning within the Department of National Defence and the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD). This report documents one of the tools designed to simulate the processes at one of the key component of the evacuation chain: the Evacuation Centre (EC). A typical EC structure is modeled, consisting of four main stations: Screen, Triage, Processing and Register. The model is implemented as a discrete-event simulation built in MathWorks SimEventsr with a graphical user interface in Microsoft Excel used to capture the inputs required by the discrete-event simulation. This report details the model developed, including assumptions considered and the main inputs and outputs. A realistic scenario is used to demonstrate the model’s capabilities and benefits.
