I need help with promodel simulation. I have attatched the file. I also have the model but you need promodel software to open it up.
Problem Set 7 Woodland Nursing Home has 6 departments – initial exam, X ray, operating room, cast-fitting room, recovery room, and checkout room . The probabilities that a patient will go from one department to another are given in Table A. The time patients spend in each department is given in Table B. Assume that there are six waiting rooms dedicated to each of the six departments. All the waiting rooms are big enough. The patients need to wait in the corresponding waiting room if the department they want to go is occupied. Patients arrive at the average rate of 5 per hour (exponential interarrival time). The nursing home remains open 24/7. From To Probabilit y Initial exam X ray 0.35 Operating room 0.20 Recovery room 0.15 Checkout room 0.30 X ray Operating room 0.15 Casting-fitting room 0.25 Recovery room 0.40 Checkout room 0.20 Operating room Cast-fitting room 0.30 Recovery room 0.65 Checkout room 0.05 Cast-fitting room Recovery room 0.55 X ray 0.10 Checkout room 0.35 Recovery room Operating room 0.10 X ray 0.20 Checkout room 0.70 Department Patient Time in Department Initial exam N(5,2) min X ray U(6,1) min Operating room N(30,5) min Cast-fitting room U(10,4) min Recovery room N(8,2) min Checkout room E(2) min

However, every seven hours (420 minutes) the front door is locked for an hour (60 minutes). No new patients are allowed in the nursing home during this time. Patients already in the system continue to get served. Simulate for one year (365 days, 24 hours per day) of operation. a. Figure out the utilization of each department b. What are the average and maximum numbers of patients in each department and its associated waiting room? c. Which is the bottleneck department? d. What is the average time spent by a patient in the nursing home? What is the average time spending on waiting? Hint Build the model on the template, which has the locations and the entity configured Use functions CLOCK() and TRUNC() to specify the condition that the front door of the nursing house is locked. o TRUNC() returns an integer truncated from the number within (). For instance, TRUNC(3.9) = 3, TRUNC(4.1) = 4, and TRUNC(57/8) = 7. Hence, 57 – TRUNC(57/8) * 8 = 1 o The front is locked if CLOCK(HR) – TRUNC(CLOCK(HR)/8)*8 > 7
