ARGESIM Benchmark C6 ‘Emergency Department – Follow-up Treatment’ on the first glance is a classic discrete process system – with servers (treatment units) and entities (patients). But the different behaviour of doctors causes some modelling difficulties. This contribution presents an agent-based modelling approach, which is much more flexible than the classic DES approach, implemented in the Java-based simulator AnyLogic, which is capable of DES, agent-based, ODE, system dynamics and programming approach.
