This paper evaluates the ability of commonly used Appointment Scheduling Rules (ASRs) in smoothing the effect of environmental factors in the performance of an outpatient scheduling system. ASRs have been widely implemented in outpatient clinics to improve performance measures such as staff idle time, patient waiting time, and facility congestion. However, the successful implementation of an ASR depends on its ability in dealing with the environmental factors affecting the system. Factors such as no-shows, variability of consultation times, patient unpunctuality, walk-in patient arrivals and the number of admitted patients per session affect the performance of the clinics in terms of ...
