This paper addresses the management and performance analysis of the pulmonology department of the general hospital of Bari, Italy, focusing on the department workflow and drug distribution system. To this aim, we present a discrete event system model which can be employed as a support for taking decisions regarding the information and automation integration in order to improve the drug procurement logistics and management. The model employs a timed Petri net framework to describe in a concise and detailed way the workflow in the pulmonology department, while considering various ordering and management policies of the department drug storehouse.
