Implementation of Information System in Crisis Management Using Modeling and Simulation

  title={Implementation of Information System in Crisis Management Using Modeling and Simulation},
  author={Ruchi Verma and Vivek Kumar Sehgal and Nitin Nitin},
Crisis is complex situations and their systematic study requires the application, experience and research from a multidisciplinary spectrum. Various formal research methods have been applied in the complex context of crisis. Crisis research has to be planned with the focus towards real world applications. In today’s digital age where online communication is a source of information dissemination has hijacked one and all modes of communication. Therefore it has become an unbeatable instrument in… Expand

Expression and Deduction of emergency scenario based on scenario element model
This paper takes the stampede as an example, dividing the scenario of emergency and its components, namely scenario elements, and representing the evolution scenario of stampede by scenario Elements model, which takes advantage of scenario elements model to provide support for the formulation and evaluation of emergency exercise.
