Blood availability in hospitals is of high humanitarian importance, thus blood shortage is not desired at all. High wastage rate of blood in hospitals is an important issue, which becomes more important as the standards of health care services becomes higher. In order to address blood shortage and wastage issues in a hospital, this paper develops a new inventory management model as a decision making tool to help making tactical and operational level decisions for a Hospital Blood Bank (HBB) inventory management. These decisions include issuance and ordering policy and the aim of the model is to reduce blood wastage and shortage. For this purpose, a multi period, multi-product inventory...

In this research, among the levels of the blood supply chain, hospital is chosen for study because of its importance. A model of inventory management of hospital blood bank is presented. In this case, we consider some assumptions which are more realistic. These assumptions include two types of emergency and ordinary demands, young blood demand, and finally, a cross-match process. In the existing articles, although blood groups considered in mathematical models, the priority of allocation of blood groups is not considered in these articles. In this study, three mathematical models are developed with deterministic parameters. In the first model, the assumption of ordinary and emergency demand,...
