Systems Modeling & Simulation Printer-friendly

A well designed transportation system accurately serves the needs of current and future ridership demands, operators, and owners. Consequently, prudent modeling and simulation are vital to accurately move conceptual ideas and planning into engineering, design, and implementation. 

Without proper modeling and simulation, system planners run the risk of poor design and may introduce significant system design flaws that introduce unnecessary costs and delays to system implementation. Further, over- or under-capacity issues have the potential to plague transit systems throughout their operating lives. 

JAI provides real-world system scenario analysis and simulation to any potential transportation system. From complex systems such as heavy metro network applications to simple shuttle people mover systems, JAI has the tools, knowledge and experience to simulate and accurately predict real-world performance of envisioned transportation solutions. 

For example, JAI recently completed a comprehensive fire and smoke analysis and simulation for the new McCarran International Airport (Las Vegas, NV) Terminal 3 APM Project. Our analysis and simulation directly led to several key design changes that directly enhanced system safety. JAI further conducted APM system capacity increase simulation and modeling for McCarran's existing APM systems.
