For each strategy, we evaluate the impact of various loading levels on simulated schedules. Occupation level is defined as the summation of expected duration of all surgeries over opening hours. Since surgeries are planned according to their value, we have no direct influence on occupation level. To influence it, we modify the number of periods during which the cases can be planned. This does not modify real opening hours (480 minutes). We work with days of 450, 460, 470, 480, 490, 500 and 510 minutes.
