Abstract

The production and inventory management of blood platelets at blood establishments and hospital blood banks is a service problem of general human interest. Shortages or inadequate supplies may pur lives at risk and thus have to be managed and kept to a minimum. However, platelets have a limited shelf life. Consequently outdating: will happen. As the supply is precious the outdating is to be minimized without jeopardizing the clinical supply.
