Interruptions are the phenomena that exist and appear in many places in life; they appear everywhere in every kind of activities either in doing personal activities daily or in doing complicated activities and processes in complex systems in industries. The role and the effect of interruptions have begun to appear a lot significantly in the industries in the last few years especially the ones that related to job interruptions in businesses. Interruptions are considered as a request for a change in process, job, think, direction, move or just for a short period of pause; these interruptions have the potential to carry treasured information that can allow people to control and manage activities in incredibly dynamic environments successfully. Urgent care unit (UCU) is one of the dynamic environments that bring on a significant amount of interruptions. A design of experiment (DOE) model is initiated as a seed to explore and comprehend the nature of the nested interruptions phenomena at UCU.
