Winter Simulation Conference 2019 Simulation for Risk Management

December 8-11

Gaylord National Resort & Conference Center

National Harbor, Maryland

Simulation of Waterway Infrastructure

December 11, 10:00am-11:30am

Rienk Bijlsma, Systems Navigator CEO, and Tom van der Schelde, Rijkswaterstaat Adviser on shipping models, will present some insights and case studies using the SIVAK model.

This presentation will take place on Wednesday, December 11 at room "Baltimore 5".


Since 1990 Rijkswaterstaat (part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management) has used SIVAK, a simulation system to analyze ship handling of traffic at locks, narrow waterways and other waterway infrastructures. Among else it can be used to investigate risks in extreme situations on the waterway. Recently, SIVAK has been redeveloped by Systems Navigator, Witteveen+Bos and MARIN, in state-of-the-art object-oriented simulation software (SIMIO). The Simio model works seamlessly with Systems Navigator’s Scenario Navigator SAAS platform allowing Rijkswaterstaat to run SIVAK as a web-based solution available to users from any location, including simulation model execution, animation, scenario management, KPI reporting, debugging, documentation & scenario comparisons.

About WSC

From its very beginnings, over 70 years ago, simulation has been a powerful tool for assessing potential risks and guiding us in making decisions under uncertainty. The 2019 conference seeks to highlight the latest simulation technologies for more accurately anticipating risks and for making more robust decisions in the face of uncertainty, ambiguity, and variability. These include methods for robust and accurate simulation modeling, analysis, and optimization.

About Rijkswaterstaat

Rijkswaterstaat is part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management and responsible for the design, construction, management, and maintenance of the main infrastructure facilities in the Netherlands. This includes the main road network, the main waterway network, and water systems.
