Italian Models: Application and Planned Development

  • Francesco Russo
Part of the Advances in Spatial Science book series (ADVSPATIAL)

Abstract

In this paper two different national models developed in Italy will be described. The first part (10.2) reports on a large model system for the operational planning of rail services developed by the Italian Railway Company “Ferrovie dello Stato”. Section 10.2.1 briefly describes the functional architecture and the main components of the Decision Support System (called SASM) that supports the system model for tactical decisions (Nuzzolo et al., 1995b; Cascetta et al., 1996a). Section 10.2.2 describes the supply model based on a diachronic (spatio-temporal) network representation of scheduled services. Then the demand model is described in Section 10.2.3. It is based on a tree-logit service/run/class choice model that takes into account the desired departure/arrival time. Finally, the assignment model is outlined in Section 10.2.4. It is a stochastic network loading model based on explicit path enumeration.
