WA | Modelling for Managers
This event will cover a general presentation on the key elements of managing transport modelling projects, what managers should expect and what they need to know. We will also look at a specific type of modelling (pedestrian model) and the specific critical elements of these models that people should be aware of.
Philippa (Phil) will be discussing modelling from a management perspective working back from the outputs that are required to what type of modelling should be used.
