The paper considers the level of aggregate production control in hospitals and looks in particular to the allocation of hospital resources. It describes an allocation procedure that takes the patient flow as point of departure. The paper describes a production control perspective to this problem, that is based on principles used in industrial settings. The results show that hospitals may benefit from this type of business-like approaches to improve workflow and capacity management.
