Simulation Tools

A complex set of computer tools used by trained experts to simulate a group of elevators responding to hall calls and car calls. Both the Basic and Enhanced Calculator are based on the traditional metrics of Morning Up Peak Traffic. An elevator loads at the lobby, delivers passengers to their floors, and returns empty for the next trip. A traffic analysis is not complete until other scenarios such as lunch time and down peak are examined through a full simulation.
