The system comprises two separate models; MOBEDIC which models peoples' decision making and the movement model which models the subsequent movement of people throughout the platform. The two models have been designed and implemented separately but they interface with each other and share the same User Interface (UI). The movement of people through the structure and the escalation of the hazard are displayed graphically to the user, and a suite of tools is provided so that different scenarios can be set up and modified. The architecture is shown here.
