Purpose of Research
Students at Dalian JiaoTong University created a model of Dalian Railway Station to forecast the maximum passenger capacity. The data doesn't consider railway station idle people and seeing-off people. This model reveals passenger arrival pattern and maximum passing capacity, which are helpful in the re-design of Dalian Railway Station.
The students are also creating models to simulate the ticketing system and passenger evacuation at railway passenger station.
Students are actively participating in this project and they find Simio is really a quick solution.
As Professor Li Jitao puts it: "Simio is so easy to learn yet so powerful to solve real world problems with its expressive power of 3D and flexible process capability. My students enjoy Simio. It’s really a nice experience in how to create a modern simulation interface -- lots of fun."
