Evaluation of the MOBILE automation system in a center for decontamination and preparation of surgical instruments


The objective of this study is to assess the impact of the operation of a prototype of the MOBILE automation system in a representative environment using a simulation model with discrete events. The objective of this system is to allow: i) automation of the loading and unloading of scrubbers; ii) automatic selection of washers and their washing cycles and ii) a reduction in the movements of members of the client team with its functions of picking up and delivering equipment directly to the desired workstations.
