CARS/YARDS SIMULATION MODEL

The purpose of the computer program is to support Operating and Traffic personnel in developing and analyzing Operating Plans and analyzing the effects of different traffic demands on operations and service. It is a car-scheduling-oriented model that simulates the scheduling and movement of historical traffic through a user-specified network. Both the operating plan and historical traffic can easily be modified by the user. The model generates a broad range of system/service performance measures. The model is a large-scale Monte Carlo simulation model and uses a regression analysis routine to simulate cars making and missing scheduled moves.
