Processing Times

The main difference between the two versions is the time to complete a task. Times that are different in Alternative version came from a report by Brian G. McCue and Monica J. Giovachino titled “A field test of the CDC smallpox vaccination clinic model” completed in April 2003. The bold font numbers are what come from the data analyses. The other numbers are from expert opinions. More detailed information about the times can be found in the manual.
