 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The proposal focuses on computer assisted decision making for Health Service crisis managers; it will aim at improving decision-making capabilities through an integrated suite of modelling and analysis tools providing insights into the collective behaviour of the whole organisation in response to crisis scenarios. Decision Support has to be provided in the following phases: - preparation: assisting in the identification of the best way to employ available assets, the limits of the achievable response and the effectiveness of different inter/intra-services cooperation procedures - implementation: providing a forecast of scenario evolution, proposing doctrine-based solutions and evaluating the effects of alternative decisions - debriefing: evaluating the effectiveness of current doctrine/procedures, proposing and evaluating possible modifications for enhancing the overall efficiency of the organisation. To achieve these objectives some scientific and technological issues must be tackled: - developing an integration infrastructure allowing for efficient integration of simulation models/supporting-tools developed or provided by different organisations - improving existing human behaviour models to represent individuals and groups as realistically as possible - considering the effects of unpredictable factors to present the user with a “distribution” of the effectiveness of a certain “decision” rather than the effectiveness of that solution deterministically dependant on the preconceived scenario The combined effects of the: - “bottom-up” modelling approach (i.e. build independent model components and then combine them) - unpredictable factors modelling (e.g. human behaviour) - analysis of decision-effectiveness distribution has the advantage of documenting both the unexpected bad and good things in the organization(s) thus leading to better responses, fewer unintended consequences and greater consensus on important decisions.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

The prototype of a simulation software suite has been developed incorporating all the tools needed to generate and run a crisis scenario. Governments and emergency services require more affordable solutions to be better prepared and to respond more effectively to such incidents.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

A crisis event involving major damage and injury to people and property can create a temporary imbalance between the emergency care required and the resources available. Modern crises are progressively changing from 'predictable' emergencies to unpredictable events for which the authorities and emergency services require new, innovative and affordable solutions.

Using simulation technologies can improve on current practices as they enable decision makers to evaluate different alternatives with continuously evolving scenarios. The 'Simulation of crisis management activities' (SICMA) project, funded by the EU, set out to demonstrate 'if' and 'how' an integrated suite of modelling and analysis tools could improve the effectiveness of the decision-making process.

Although the SICMA project focused on developing computer-assisted tools for crisis managers in the health service, the results can be applied and adapted to other emergency services organisations. The software suite can improve decision-making capabilities and provide insights into the collective behaviour of the entire organisation in response to crisis scenarios.

A 'proof-of-concept' experiment was used to test and validate the new software programme. The simulation was based on a relevant international scenario that required cross-national cooperation and the coordination of emergency services.

The SICMA project has demonstrated that simulation software can facilitate better emergency responses and greater consensus in a crisis. Exploitation of the project results will require commercialisation of the new software for crisis management to enable medical disaster and other crisis managers to benefit from its advantages.
