Prospective Healthcare Decision-Making By Combined System Dynamics, Discrete-Event And Agent-Based Simulation Anatoli Djanatliev, Reinhard German, Proceedings of the 2013 Winter Simulation Conference
Prospective Health Technology Assessment allows early decision making for innovative health care technologies. In our recent publications a hybrid simulation approach with System Dynamics and Agent-Based Modeling has been presented. This paper presents a mechanism to generate agents dynamically from SD models and extends the previously presented hybrid approach by process-oriented Discrete Event Simulation for hospital modeling.» Mehr lesen
Business Process Modeling and Efficiency Improvement through an Agent-Based Approach Dario RUSSO, Franco PASSACANTANDO, Luigi GEPPERT, Luigi MANCA
This paper describes the results of a practical experience of business process improvement and change. the business modeling approach, carried out through an agent-based model, has been applied to an operational process with the aim to reduce the overlapping of the operational phases and to improve the time-efficiency. Simulation outcomes and results are discussed.» Mehr lesen

Investigating Output Accuracy for a Discrete Event Simulation Model and an Agent Based Simulation Model Mazlina Abdul Majid, Uwe Aickelin, Peer-Olaf Siebers. 2009 INFORMS at University of Warwick, June 25-27, Coventry, U.K.
In this paper, we investigate output accuracy for a Discrete Event Simulation (DES) model and Agent Based Simulation (ABS) model. The purpose of this investigation is to find out which of these simulation techniques is the best one for modelling human reactive behaviour in the retail sector. In order to study the output accuracy in both models, we have carried out a validation experiment in which we compared the results from our simulation models to the performance of a real system. Our experiment was carried out using a large UK department store as a case study.» Mehr lesen
Dynamic Learning in Human Decision Behavior for Evacuation Scenarios under BDI Framework Seungho Lee, Young-Jun Son. 2009 INFORMS at University of Warwick, June 25-27, Coventry, U.K.
A novel approach to represent learning in human decision behavior for evacuation scenarios is proposed under the context of an extended Belief-Desire-Intention framework. In particular, we focus on how a human adjusts his perception process (involving a Bayesian belief network) in Belief Module dynamically against his performance in predicting the environment as part of his decision planning function. To this end, a Q-learning algorithm (reinforcement learning algorithm) is employed and further developed.» Mehr lesen
Agent-based Modeling and Simulation Charles M. Macal, Michael J. North. 2009 Winter Simulation Conference (WSC’09), December 13-16, Austin, TX, USA
Agent-based modeling and simulation (ABMS) is a new approach to modeling systems comprised of autonomous, interacting agents. Computational advances have made possible a growing number of agent-based models across a variety of application domains. Applications range from modeling agent behavior in the stock market, supply chains, and consumer markets, to predicting the spread of epidemics, mitigating the threat of bio-warfare, and understanding the factors that may be responsible for the fall of ancient civilizations.» Mehr lesen

A multi-paradigm, whole system view of health and social care for age-related macular degeneration Joe Viana, Stuart Rossiter, Andrew A. Channon, Sally C. Brailsford, Andrew Lotery, WSC-2012, Berlin
This paper presents a hybrid simulation model for the management of an eye condition called age-related macular degeneration, which particularly affects the elderly. The model represents not only the detailed clinical progression of disease in an individual, but also the organization of the hospital clinic in which patients with this condition are treated and the wider environment in which these patients live (and their social care needs, if any, are met). The model permits a ‘whole system’ societal view which captures the interactions between the health and social care systems» Mehr lesen
