Enabled by the increased availability of data, the data assimilation technique, which incorporates measured observations into a dynamical system model to produce a time sequence of estimated system states, gains popularity. The main reason is that it can produce more accurate estimation results than using either a simulation model or the...

Poelman, R. (author)
This thesis is concerned with the creation of a hard- and software artifact that allows professionals to collaborate in a digitally augmented physical space, otherwise known as meditated reality or physical computing. On-premise professionals are supported with sensors and human computer interaction capabilities while freely walking around. A...

Kurapati, S. (author)
Operating socio technical systems such as energy distribution networks, power plants, container terminals, and healthcare systems is a grand challenge. Decision making in these systems is complex due to their size, diversity, dynamism, social component, distributed nature, uncertainty, and vulnerability to disruptions. Human actors in these...

Buttler, T. (author)
Project-based organizations collect lessons learned in order to improve the performance of projects. They aim to repeat successes by using positive lessons learned, and to avoid repeating negative experiences by using negative lessons learned. Cooke-Davies (2002) claimed that the ability to learn from past projects for future projects is a key...

Huang, Y. (author)
One of today's challenges in the field of modeling and simulation is to model increasingly larger and more complex systems. Complex models take long to develop and incur high costs. With the advances in data collection technologies and more popular use of computer-aided systems, more data has become available in many organizations. This often...

Küçükkeçeci Çetinkaya, D. (author)
Modeling and simulation (M&S) is an effective method for analyzing and designing systems and it is of interest to scientists and engineers from all disciplines. This thesis proposes the application of a model driven software development approach throughout the whole set of M&S activities and it proposes a formal model driven development...

Bosch-Rekveldt, M.G.C. (author)
Engineering projects become increasingly more complex and project complexity is assumed to be one of the causes for projects being delivered late and over budget. However, what this project complexity actually comprised of was unclear. To improve the overall project performance, this study focuses on identifying the potential causes of...

Fumarola, M. (author)
Designing large logistics systems, such as automated container terminals, is a challenging task that requires the collaboration of multiple organizations. To support the design process, simulation models are used to provide insight into the behavior and performance of future systems. Using design science research, we propose a multi-actor...

Dos Santos Soares, M. (author)
In the research that led to this thesis a multi-disciplinary approach, combining Traffic Engineering and Software Engineering, was used. Traffic engineers come up with new control strategies and algorithms for improving traffic. Once new solutions are defined from a Traffic Engineering point of view, there is the problem of obtaining operational...

Sustainable growth and the commercial success of "Mainport Holland", located in one of Europe’s most densely populated areas, is threatened by a lack of available land, a congested infrastructure, and an increasingly complex social, economic and political reality. To deal with these threats mainports, such as the Port of Rotterdam, are...
