Activity-Based Modeling Scheduling and Time of Day Choice Session 9



Date: Thursday, July 19, 2012
Time: 14:00
Location: Online


The ninth activity-based webinar session entitled Scheduling and Time of Day Choice is the sixth in a series of technically-oriented webinars which will cover fundamental aspects of activity-based modeling systems. Enhanced temporal resolution is an aspect of activity-based modeling systems that provides clear policy advantages over trip-based modeling systems. At the same time, scheduling algorithms are one of the areas where the greatest variation exists across activity-based modeling platforms, which attempt to take into account decision-maker priorities and time-space constraints within tours and entire days. This webinar covers scheduling algorithms that may be found in extant modeling systems, and explores variations in the representation of time-of-day choices, including discrete, continuous and quasi-continuous formulations.
