Abstract:

Mass casualty incidents (MCI) are highly
dynamic situations. In order to minimize potential losses associated primarily
with human lives, it is particularly important to quickly and efficiently
allocate the available limited resources. Thus, a flexible solution for
rational resource allocation is needed. In this paper, we show a combination of
technologies from different fields of research that have focused on the support
for such an optimal solution. We describe a mathematical model and then
demonstrate a prototype implementation with evaluation results of the suggested
approach.
