The report discusses some automated guideway management problems relating to ground transportation systems and provides an outline of the types of models and algorithms that could be used to develop simulation tools for evaluating system performance. The system management problems are related to the routing and scheduling of both passengers and vehicles, as well as to control strategies such as synchronous and quasi-synchronous. The simulation outline provides background material for model descriptive, functional requirements, and simulation structure that can be used in future development activities.
