Using Simio for Wartime Optimal Placement of Casualty Evacuation Assets


This paper focuses on the use of a discrete simulation tool (Simio) to explore the optimal number of casualty evacuation assets within a theater of operations. Through the use of Simio simulation platform, visual simulation model of wartime casualty evacuation was developed, based on analysis and hypothesis of wartime patient evacuation processes. Then, the optimal placement of the evacuation assets was explored by simulation experiments. The simulation model developed will support transportation capacity estimation and evacuation assets allocation for medical support.
