D esigners, program managers, analysts, and engineers use computer simulation modeling to understand and evaluate ‘what if’ case :// The systems modeling methodology of system dynamics is well suited to address the dynamic complexity that characterizes many public health issues. The system dynamics approach involves the development of computer simulation models that portray processes of accumulation and feedback and that may be tested systematically to find effective Simulation is the imitation or representation of one act or system by another.

Healthcare simulations can be said to have four main purposes – education, assessment, research, and health system integration in facilitating patient safety.

Each of these purposes may be met by some combination of role play, low and high tech tools, and a variety of settings from tabletop sessions to a realistic   This study develops a simulation model that can describe the accurate working environment of emergency room by analyzing the effects of both work pressure and burnout.

For this purpose, we consider burnout as a critical factor that plays a role in running an emergency room efficiently and as a cause for unexpected outcomes.

Resource allocation in patient care relies heavily on individual judgements of healthcare professionals. Such professionals perform coordinating functions by managing the timing and execution of a multitude of care processes for multiple patients.

Based on advances in simulation, new technologies that could be used for establishing realistic representations have been :// The ADDIE method. The A in ADDIE refers to the Analysis phase which involves identifying the target audience or learners to determine their learning needs.

The first D is for the Development phase which involves delineating entry behavior, learning outcomes, and learning sequence. The second D is for the Design phase which involves specifying the content to be covered and selecting the medium A computer simulation model was constructed to model the drug ordering and delivery system using STELLA, a continuous simulation software package.
