Team 7: Investigating the Use of Simulation Tools for Mass Casualty Disaster Response
MetadataShow full item record
The focus for Team 7 at IDFW 18 was the investigation of modeling requirements for simulating mass-casualty disaster response scenarios and the investigation of how existing simulation packages could meet these requirements. We began with a brainstorming session of possible events that could result in mass-casualty disaster situations. To provide a framework for our thinking, we developed a basic scenario to consider while discussing what types of features a modeling software package would need to have to build a useful simulation model for this type of scenario. This discussion inherently included consideration of both the discrete-event simulation (DES) and the agent-based simulation (ABS) methodologies. The list of features was used to evaluate several simulation software packages for suitability. Next, details were specified for the scenario and team members attempted to build simulation models using four different packages: Arena, NetLogo, Pythagoras and Sandis. In addition, we interviewed experts in additional packages: MANA, PAX, and Extend. With the results of this investigation and experience, we drew some conclusions about simulation modeling of mass-casualty disaster response scenarios.
