  1. 1. Transport policy analysis using multi-agent-based simulation

    University dissertation from Karlskrona : Blekinge Institute of Technology

    Author : Linda Ramstedt; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Transportation; Transport chain; Multi-agent-based simulation; Transport policy; Logistics; Decisions;

    Abstract : This thesis explores how multi-agent-based simulation can be used for transport policy analysis. Transport policies are often used as a means to reach governmental goals, such as environmental targets to reduce the impact of transportation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Design and Investigation of a Decision Support System for Public Policy Formulation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Computer and Systems Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Osama Ibrahim; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Systems Thinking; Prescriptive Policy Analysis; Policy modelling and Simulation; ICT for governane; Sense4us; Policy Impact Assessment; Scenario Planning; Knowledge synthesis; data- och systemvetenskap; Computer and Systems Sciences;

    Abstract : The ultimate aim of support for public policy decision making is to develop ways of facilitating policymaking that can create policies that are consistent with the preferences of policymakers and stakeholders (such as an increase in economic growth, the reduction of social inequalities, and improvements to the environment), and that are at the same time based on the available knowledge and evidential information.Using the design science research methodology, an iterative design process was followed to build and evaluate a research artefact in the form of an analytical method that is also operationalised as a decision support system (DSS) – in order to facilitate the problem analysis, the impact assessment and the decision evaluation activities carried out at the policy formulation stage of the policymaking process.

  3. 3. Consistency management in collaborative modelling and simulation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Jenny Ulriksson; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; CSCW; collaboration; HLA; distributed simulation; consistency management; CSCW services; modelling and simulation; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Informatics; computer and systems science Computer and systems science; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap Data- och systemvetenskap;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to exploit the technological capabilities of computer supported collaborative work (CSCW) in the field of collaborative Modelling and Simulation (M&S). The thesis focuses on addressing two main problems: (i) providing flexible means of consistency management in collaborative M&S, and (ii) the ability of providing platform and application independent services for collaborative M&S.

  4. 4. On the Improvement of Healthcare Management Using Simulation and Optimisation

    University dissertation from Karlskrona : Blekinge Institute of Technology

    Author : Marie Persson; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola.; [2010]

    Abstract : This thesis concerns healthcare management and specifically addresses the problems of operating room planning and waiting list management. The operating room department is one of the most expensive areas within the healthcare system which necessitates many expensive resources such as staff, equipment and medicine. READ MORE

  5. 5. Simulation of Phosphorus, Zinc and Cadmium Mass Flow in Dairy Farming Systems

    University dissertation from Department of Chemical Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Anna-Karin Modin Edman; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi; Chemical technology and engineering; Miljöstudier; Environmental studies; management; Cd; Zn; P; mass balance; system analysis; simulation;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish En simuleringsmodell, FARMFLOW, utvecklades för att beräkna förråd, flöden och balanser av fosfor (P), zink (Zn) och kadmium (Cd) på mjölkgårdar. De simulerade kontinuerliga förändringarna av ämnesförråden gör det möjligt att utvärdera de långsiktiga effekterna av olika skötselstrategier. READ MORE
