Blood collection management consists of complex processes that impact the blood outdated rate. This research intends to build an effective collection strategy for the blood bank so expiration rates could be reduced. According to the observed system complexity, a suitable method in this research is discrete event simulation. Three scenarios are used in this research is the strategy of PMI in collecting the blood supply, which is a Mobile Unit Model (MUM) strategy. With the 95% minimum target of order fulfilment rate, this research is succeeded in decreasing expiration rates by 4%, by changing the supply rate of MUM, from 40 hours of time between arrivals to be 44 hours.
