Simulation as a means of providing input to the CSMT
The Collaborative Synchronization Management Tool (CSMT) is an analysis tool that enables morphological and statistical analysis of plans. Input to the CSMT consists of a Cross Impact Matrix (CIM) where the relationships between the different activities of a plan are reflected as its values. This thesis proposes Modeling and Simulation as an alternative method of generating the CIM-values. The usage of this method will hopefully increase traceability and limit subjectivity, and it will also be less time-consuming. Determining the level of detail of the models was shown to be a challenge, as well as finding a suitable case scenario to validate the generation method more thoroughly. The results have provided positive indicators to the usefulness of the generation method of input to the CSMT but the evaluation remains somewhat inconclusive.
