After successful completion of this module component, the student is able to:
- communicate and collaborate in a group with other students
- select appropriate modelling tools (from the set of tools provided in this module) for a large real-life problem in road construction and use them to model and solve the problem.
- interpret the outcomes of the before mentioned tools and formulate practical recommendations for system improvement.
- inform and convince the problem owner by means of a report and presentation.
This is a part of Module 8, Modelling & Analysis of Stochastic Processes of the Bachelor Civil Engineering. See here for the complete description of this module.
- he project part M8P is about the logistics of the construction project and the impact on traffic flows, which results in impact on several externalities (e.g. environment, hindrance, accessibility, economy, safety). The weighting of different aspects is: construction 0,4; traffic 0,4, report 0,1 and project management 0,1. Cor van den Berg’s CV/application letter/interview training is also part of M8. It is a mandatory prerequisite to finish M8P, yet no ECs are assigned and it is no part of the final grade for M8T.
- The assignment in M8P is on a project on road construction. Simulation of logistic processes, and simulation of traffic flows are major issues that must be addressed in the assignment where students study logistic management of the construction project and its impact on traffic operations and externalities.
