Abstract:

The Southern California Agile Supply Network SCASN simulation model is being developed to assist in demonstrating the viability of one or more Joint Power Projection Platforms JPPSP, providing the capability to create a regional freight flow representation to support what if freight movement strategies to be tested, analyzed, and communicated. The model will be used to prove how changes in infrastructure capacity, operating strategy, and level of information coordination can be used to more efficiently move current and projected freight volumes and relieve congestion through the region. The SCASN simulation will use a flexible and extendible model framework that allows for a variety of freight flow strategies to be configured and tested. The model architecture will be multi-layered to provide dynamic simulation capabilities, a user interface, and internal database. This modeling system is known as the Modeling Studio in that it provides a one stop master control interface to conduct all modeling activities such as freight flow configuration, data storage, managing scenarios, and executing the simulation and animation runs.
