  • A simheuristic algorithm for video streaming flows optimisation with QoS threshold modelled as a stochastic single-allocation p-hub median problem
    J. Simul. (IF 1.214) Pub Date : 2021-01-19
    Stephanie Alvarez Fernandez; Daniele Ferone; Angel Juan; Daniele Tarchi

    ABSTRACT Modern telecommunication networks are comprised of a countless number of nodes exchanging data among them. In particular, multimedia traffic – composed of audio, video, and images – represents a challenging scenario requiring link optimisation techniques. The hub-and-spoke topology is frequently used to design more effective telecommunication networks. This work considers a hub-and-spoke network

    ABSTRACT Internet of Things applications are based on ubiquitous networks of multiple distributed devices, with limited computing resources and power, capable of collecting and storing data from heterogeneous sources in real-time. To avoid network saturation and delays, new architectures are needed to provide real-time Big Data and data analytics capabilities at the edge of the network, where energy

    ABSTRACT Food waste is an issue of global importance. Households generate more food waste than any other source in high- and middle-income countries. There are many solutions to reduce household food waste, but measurement of the impact of each solution is costly, and therefore usually not undertaken. This is a major barrier to decision makers adopting the most effective solutions. Discrete event simulation

It is of foremost importance to be able to anticipate and evaluate the potential effects of such strategies before they can be successfully

    The academic achievement gap in the United States education system persists despite significant investments and efforts to correct it. Research reveals potential functions – priorities, readiness, expectation and motivation – performed by four stakeholders – students, teachers, schools and parents. A system dynamics simulation is proposed that captures the stakeholders and their functions to facilitate

    ABSTRACT The rapid decarbonisation of transportation is critical if global efforts to mitigate the worst possible impacts of anthropogenic climate change are to be successful. Transportation is a leading sectoral contributor of greenhouse gas emissions, and demand for transportation continues to grow globally. Alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) powered by fuels such as electricity, hydrogen, and biofuels

  • Can we learn from simplified simulation models? An experimental study on user learning
    J. Simul. (IF 1.214) Pub Date : 2020-01-09

    Simple models are considered useful for decision making, especially when decisions are made by a group of stakeholders. This paper describes an experimental study that investigates whether the level of model detail affects users’ learning. Our subjects, undergraduate students, were asked to solve a resource utilisation task for an ambulance service problem. They worked in groups under three different

    Hospital bed management is crucial to ensure that patients do not have to wait for the right bed for their care. A simulation model has been developed that mimics the bed management rules applied to the Trauma & Orthopaedic wards of a busy Welsh hospital. The model includes forecasting methodologies to predict the number of emergency admissions, split by gender. The model uses near real-time admission

    A deterministic Material Flow Analysis (MFA) simulation tool has been developed within Microsoft Excel allowing the user to simply and quickly enter relevant material and logistics data. This data is then processed mathematically stepping through time in user-specified intervals assessing stock levels and vehicle status. The monitoring of the material flow in this manner provides data resolution that

  • Long-term sustainability of clusters: A dynamic theory of declusterisation
    J. Simul. (IF 1.214) Pub Date : 2019-12-23
    Elisabetta Marafioti; Edoardo Mollona; Fabrizio Perretti

    In this paper, we build a System Dynamics simulation model to study the long-term counterintuitive consequences of internationalisation strategies of machinery producers in industrial clusters and proposes an explanation for declusterization. To test this hypothesis, we collected empirical data on declusterization and clusters’ exports towards newly industrialized countries, we formalised our hypotheses

    Taxi sharing is an emerging transportation arrangement that helps improve the passengers’ travel efficiency and reduce costs. This study analyzes the simulations for an urban taxi sharing system on routes and passengers. Considering the impact of different congestion levels, the relationships between the congestion and cost are analyzed. Under the constraints of the number of passengers and their own

    Increase of the computing power on handheld devices has made these devices attractive for many applications including simulation systems. There are Parallel Discrete-Event Simulation (PDES) frameworks exists but most of these are designed for cluster systems, not suitable for battery operated devices. In this paper, the well- known Rensselaer’s Optimistic Simulation System (ROSS) framework has been

    ABSTRACT Transportation planning is necessary to meet the demand of a given region considering the dimensions of urban space and the complexity of the activities developed on it. In addition to planning, the government intervention through policies to provide an adequate flow of people and goods to meet population demand is also important. In Brazil, the Brazilian Urban Mobility Policy (BUMP) aims

    Yinling Liu; Tao Wang; Haiqing Zhang; Vincent Cheutet

    This paper addresses the problem of Fault Classification and Prediction (FCP) without sufficient data in aircraft maintenance. An innovative approach based on Agent-Based Simulation System (ABSS) and the Fuzzy-Rough Nearest Neighbour (FRNN) method is proposed. To do so, a framework for integrating the FRNN approach into ABSS is firstly provided. The concept and architecture models of FRNN-ABSS are

    Going from a neighbourhood-based to a choice-based system of school selection can have positive effects on enrolment in higher achievement schools, increasing average student achievement. We develop an Agent-Based model (ABM) that simulates students’ decisions on a heterogeneous agents’ framework with information asymmetries between income levels, allowing to simulate school choice policies and determine

    The capacitated location routing problem (CLRP) integrates a facility location problem with a multi-depot vehicle routing problem. We consider the CLRP with stochastic demands, whose specific values are only revealed upon reaching each customer. The main goal is to minimise the expected costs of: (i) opening facilities, (ii) using a fleet of vehicles, (iii) executing a routing plan, and (iv) applying

    In recent months, we are witnessing a global demonstration of people, predominantly young, spreading a clear message: “we must do something against climate change and do it immediately, the way we live is no longer sustainable”. Despite the urgency of the actions most of the people are not expert in sustainability, thus it is not always trivial to identify the effectiveness of any action, promoted
