EXTENDED SYSTEM OPERATIONS STUDIES FOR AUTOMATED GUIDEWAY TRANSIT SYSTEMS: PLAN FOR TASK 5--DPM FAILURE MANAGEMENT

The purpose of Task 5 in the Extended System Operations Studies Project, DPM Failure Management, is to enhance the capabilities of the Downtown People Mover Simulation (DPMS) and the Discrete Event Simulation Model (DESM) by increasing the failure modeling detail of these processors so that a variety of failure management strategies can be evaluated in terms of total vehicle and passenger delay. The purposes of this planning document are to list the major failure management strategies that are currently being considered in engineering studies of DPMs and to propose software modifications, in functional terms, and analysis techniques that will permit modeling of as many of these strategies as possible.
