Subsea production and processing systems have become a hot topic among research institutes and industries. While highlighting the advantages on production and economy, the reliability issues show a different picture with limited access, difficulty of maintenance and possibly lower availability. The influence of these issues on the system performance is studied in this paper to evaluate the benefit of subsea systems.

Evaluating the Impact of Pharmacies on Pandemic Influenza Vaccine Administration
Schwerzmann J, Graitcer SB, Jester B, Krahl D, Jernigan D, Bridges CB, Miller J

Is it really beneficial for pharmacists to administer pandemic influenza vaccines? Absolutely! Using ExtendSim, researchers showed that weekly national vaccine administration capacity increased to 25 million doses per week when pharmacist vaccinators are integrated into pandemic vaccine response planning. In addition, the time to achieve 80% vaccination coverage nationally was reduced by 7 weeks, assuming high public demand for vaccination. Read more
