COMPUTER SIMULATION OF A SMALL RAILROAD SYSTEM FOR OPTIMAL PASSENGER SERVICE WITH MINIMAL CAPITAL INVESTMENT

The current railroad system in Taiwan consists of a major railroad about 411 kilometers in length along the populous west coast, with some minor railroads spreading over the island. The major part of the land transportation on the island is served by this railroad which connects all the seven largest cities and the two major seaports and all the significant industrial centers of Taiwan. Operations statistics show that the railroad utilization is among the highest in the world. A simulation study of the Taiwan railroad system is reported. Three alternatives were simulated. Problem description, reasons for simulation, simulation objectives, language selection, data collection and model development, simulation results, and conclusion are presented.
