A METHODOLOGY FOR THE CREATION, CALIBRATION, AND UTILIZATION OF A MICRO-SIMULATION MODEL

The advent of microcomputers has created a multitude of traffic engineering tools, one such tool is the computer micro-simulation model. This paper presents the methodology required of a traffic engineer in the creation and use of a micro-simulation model. This paper explains the background and reason for choosing a micro-simulation model and uses the example of an interstate weigh station to further develop the concepts of model generation, verification, validation, and finally model output.
