The overall aim of the research will be to improve blood supply chain management in order to use the scarce resource of blood more efficiently.

The research will aim to improve procedures and outcomes by modelling the supply chain from donor to recipient. The supply chain of blood products is broken down into material flows and information flows. Mathematical modelling and simulation will be used to determine ordering policies leading to reductions in shortages and wastage, increased service levels, improved safety procedures and reduced costs, by employing better system coordination.
