Abstract

Many different companies and institutions related to cargo transportation (such as logistics centers, manufacturing companies, shopping malls, etc.) face a major problem: bottlenecks. The purpose of the chapter is to introduce the framework of modeling traffic flow patterns in entrances of companies operating queuing managing system. Aiming to present effective solutions for congested traffic control and ensure high quality customer flow management, the authors present a framework of a traffic flow simulator. The simulator each and every modeling minute generates a stochastic flow of arriving vehicles meeting corresponding to the average values of the selected parameters. In the result the output characteristics—such as queues and traffic jams—are obtained in graphical form. The model has been designed using Visual Basic for Applications for the reason that non-standard parameter values of the above-mentioned model might be also inserted into the cells.
