Once users converts all knowledge-base information for a given accident scenario into a set of “State Chart Diagrams”, the users can execute the interaction simulation among actors by activating the interaction simulator.
The execution time of each basic task will be affected by the following factors;
1. Component property for required time
Each component for the basic task has a variable for required time. The variable will be used to simulate the execution time to complete the task.
(See How to create scenario data Step.5)
2. Traveling time
When people move to other place, the traveling time will be added, which is calculated by the distance and the way of getting there (by walk or by car).
(See Map Setting)
3. Required number of people
Each “State Chart Diagram” needs required number of people to complete it.
The interaction simulator tries to get the required number of people to execute the “State Chart Diagram”.
If it failed, the execution will be postponed until it gets enough people.
4. Waiting time for others
If the scenario needs someone’s help or accomplishment of other task, a person needs to wait someone.
(See Example of cooperation)
5. Required time to get resources
If people fail to get a certain resources such as cars, tools and materials to complete a task, he/she needs to wait until getting them.
