The paper presents some models for optimizing the production rate of an automatic multitest blood analyser. A blood analysis may require one or more tests. The performance of the analyser depends on the test compositions of the analyses and the design of the analyser itself. The design can be changed. The optimal design can be determined by solving a set partitioning problem, given a representative sample of blood analyses.
