Elevator Systems Simulation Techniques

Computer simulation techniques have in recent years largely replaced manual calculations for determining the performance of systems of elevators in building design. The rapid increase in the ratio of speed to cost for new computer hardware extends the possibilities for more advanced simulation techniques. Time-slice (as opposed to event-slice), diversified and less structured input data, extended input-output parameters, can all be integrated into low cost ‘user friendly’ simulation programs.
