DISCRETE EVENT SIMULATION MODEL (DESM) AND THE ASSOCIATED CONTROL AND EXAMPLE INPUT FILES

The discrete Event Simulation Model (DESM) provides the capability to model the operation of a mass transit system operating over a network composed of guideway links and stations within a given time domain. A wide range of transit classes can be modelled using the DESM. User controls and options are available within the simulator to allow modeling the effects of various operating strategies and service policy options on overall system performance in terms of providing transportation service on an individual patron basis. The model is described in detail in two documents, the Discrete Event Simulation Model User's Manual (UMTA-MA-06-0048-82-2) contains the Modelling features, requirements and procedures necessary for execution of the model, the Discrete Event Simulation Model Programer's Manual (UMTA-MA-06-0048-82-1) contains information for Model Maintenance and Modifications, as required... Saftware Description: The program is written in the FORTRAN programming language for implementation on a IBM 370-3031 computer using the MVS/TSO operating system. 3,500K bytes of core storage are required to operate the model.
