Reachability Modeling for Multimodal Networks Prototyping
A declarative model aimed at reachability-driven refinement of the multimodal networks (MNs) cyclic steady state space is proposed. The concept of multimodal processes executed in goods/passengers transportation or data transmission networks where several closed loop structure subnetworks interact each other via distinguished subsets of common shared hubs as to provide a variety of demand-responsive goods or data transportation/handling services is employed. Multimodal processes throughput depends on their cycle time that is on cycle time reachable in considered MN. Therefore, searching for the MN’s cyclic steady state behavior the following question is considered: Is the cyclic steady state space reachable in the given network structure? The declarative approach employed makes it possible to evaluate the reachability of cyclic behaviors on a scale that reflects real practice.
