A Proposed Simulation Model for Optimizing the Traffic Flow from Arafat to Muzdalifah (Published)

This project simulates the flow of pilgrims when they travel from Arafat to Muzdalifah. The system includes a road network that connects Arafat to Muzdalifah. It is represented as a queuing system with different queue measurements that simulate reality. The system includes various types of transportation, such as small and large buses and trains, which are represented by objects with different lengths and colors. Some individuals choose walking over modern means of transportation, so pedestrians are also represented. All of the system objects carry specifications about their corresponding source system’s objects; these specifications are data collected by the Ministry of Hajj. The primary objective of the system is to answer scenario questions to support decision-making in optimizing Hajj traffic, which can be achieved by manipulating the system’s variables and observing the key performance indicators of the system. The system presents the experiment’s results as visual feedback alongside written reports with statistics.
