Abstract: With the aim of rationalization, resources optimization and service quality improvement, Moroccan hospitals are improving their management strategy, especially in the operating rooms. Budget cuts and the increasing number of patients of the operating rooms services are the major constraints of reasonable hospital management. Those operating rooms responsible are in charge of searching for a way to respond optimally to these needs. Therefore, it is undeniable that the optimization of the allocated expenses and resources of these rooms has become a necessity. In the present work we model operating rooms using the object approach with UML. A study of a real case of the National Institute of Oncology (NIO) is presented to elucidate the functional, static and dynamic aspects. Subsequently, we present the results of performance of operating rooms modeled using the simulation software ARENA, taking in account various configurations of evolution of the structure of the studied system.
