Special Issue on: "Simulation and Process Modelling in Safety and Emergencies"

Guest Editor:
Dr. Dash Wu, University of Toronto, Canada

Today’s economy has always met with various emergency events. Businesses benefit from conducting simulation and modelling of various safety and emergency events using tools such as scenario analysis. Most organisations realise that they will improve performance if they build good scenario analysis systems.

This special issue is intended to present state-of-the-art work that demonstrates tools which improve simulation and process modelling tools in e-society. Both theoretical and applied work is welcome.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include but are not limited to:

  • Reengineering of business processes
  • Supply chain simulation
  • Production and healthcare processes management
  • Aviation safety process modelling
  • Modelling emergency business processes
  • E-business processes and safety
  • Verification and validation, simulation life-cycle evolution
  • Web-based scenario security simulation
  • Performance optimisation through emergency simulation
  • Other issues related to simulation and process modelling in safety
