11th-13th April 2016 saw the return of the Operational Research Society’s biennial simulation workshop (SW16). The conference welcomed an excellent mix of delegates from the fields of simulation practice and research. It covered applications and theoretical developments across all simulation methods, such as agent-based simulation, system dynamics, discrete-event simulation and monte-carlo simulation.
Guillaume Lagaillarde presented: URBASIM, PUBLIC TRANSPORT NETWORK SIMULATION
After having done two specific models for Lille and Toulouse Metros, 1Point2 decided to create a metatool which would enable a non-specialist in simulation to build its own public transportation network model and use it to answer various questions about resources, timetables, evolution of the network, utilization of vehicles, reaction to traffic peaks or unusual events.
