Based on the MBB case in India, this paper takes the cost and the shortage rate as output variables, considers five events including demand events, collection events, storage events, shortage events, and overdue events in the blood supply chain, and establishes a blood supply chain simulation model. The total cost and shortage rate under normal circumstances, expanding blood collection station scale, and increasing the number of organized blood collection activities provide decision-making suggestions for decision makers. The simulation results of the study examples show that expanding the scale of blood collection stations and increasing the size of blood collection stations can make the total cost decreased by 68%, the shortage rate decreased by an average of 26%, the increase in the number of blood collection activities reduced the total cost of the blood supply chain by 61%, and the shortage rate decreased by 33%, which verified the feasibility and effectiveness of the simulation model. Research on other blood centers also has some value of reference.
