Abstract:

To help the United States Marine Corps streamline its medical materiel, the Naval Health Research Center expanded the Estimating Supplies Program ESP into the ReSupply Validation Program RSVP to link medical materiel to a defined patient stream. RSVP is a simulation program that validates medical supply configurations by stochastically generating multiple iterations of a patient stream, generating the supplies necessary to treat the patients, and comparing these needs with a time-phased inventory. This document explains what RSVP does, how it works, and why it is useful for the medical planning and logistics communities.
