Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 154)


The main goal of this project was to build a Web-based information system – SAD_BaSe – that monitors blood donations and the blood production chain in a user-friendly way. In particular, the system keeps track of several data indicators and supports their analysis, enabling the definition of collection and production strategies and, the measurement of quality indicators required by the Quality Management System of blood establishments. Data mining supports the analysis of donor eligibility criteria.
