Abstract

Ambulance deployment involves controlling a fleet of ambulances, often in real time, in an attempt to keep response times small. Simulation has been used to devise redeployment policies, and bounds have been obtained from a combination of comparison methods for queues (coupling) and simulation. These techniques yield varying results on two realistic examples. In an attempt to understand the varying results, we explore the performance of the policies and bounds on artificial models.
