Abstract : This study examines various scheduling systems in order to determine which scheduling system would be best for scheduling operating room usage at Tripler Army Medical Center, Hawaii. It is concluded that the optimum solution to the problem of determining the best operating room scheduling system at Tripler is to computerize the scheduling system. As delineated in the discussion, the abundance of advantages favor a computerized scheduling system. A computerized system is the only solution that meets all of the criteria discussed earlier in this study. Even its disadvantages can be surmounted. There are no current resource constraints to developing, implementing, and using a computerized system.
