PRISM Application Reports

Black Country Study -Phase 3 Report PRISM LTP Major Schemes

This report describes the analysis and key outcomes of the transport technical work carried out as part of the Black Country Study. The analysis is based on the model outputs from the new strategic model of the West Midlands: PRISM.

The PRISM Team had undertaken an initial assessment of possible major schemes in February 2005. The network for this earlier study incorporated all proposed major schemes funded under the Central Government £1b fund for the West Midlands. The model gave a brief idea of the future traffic and passenger movements within the West Midlands and its surrounding areas, given all the major schemes were implemented.

PRISM LTP Network Tests PRISM Reference Cases

This report outlines the individual LTP scheme coding, in addition to the Reference Network (NR1). A few underlying assumption were also taken and explained in the report, as much to incorporate certain schemes into the network.

This report outlines the individual LTP scheme coding, in addition to the base year network to develop the ‘Reference Network (NR1)’. A few underlying assumption were also taken and explained in the report, as much to incorporate certain schemes into the network. This report also provides the descriptions of the planning data scenarios used for the model development.

PRISM Sensitivity Tests  

This report outlines the network coding and assumptions which have been made. Model result comparisons against existing relevant information have also been done and discussed in this report.

 

 

PRISM Demand Model Reports

PRISM - Tour Based Mode Destination Modelling (Task 1) PRISM - Tour Generation Modelling (Task 2)

This report describes Task 1 of the PRISM project which was undertaken by RAND Europe, the estimation of disaggregate models of mode and destination choice for homebased tours. The mode-destination choice models have been estimated from 2001 Household Interview data. In this report the modelling assumptions, the models themselves and validation results are presented, with a separate chapter for each travel purpose.

This report describes Task 2 of the PRISM project which was undertaken by RAND Europe, the estimation of disaggregate tour frequency models. Tour frequency models have been estimated from the 2001 Household Interview data. In this report the frequency models and validation results are presented, with a separate chapter for each tour purpose.

PRISM - Time of Day Choice Models (Task 3) PRISM - Base Year Implementation of the NTM Car Ownership Models (Task 4)

This report describes Task 3 of the PRISM project, the data collection and estimation of Time-Of-Day (TOD) choice models. These models predict car drivers’ responses in terms of time of day choice to increased travel times as a result of congestion and to congestion pricing policies. The report describes both the Stated Preference survey which was undertaken to determine the model parameters and the model estimation procedure and results.

This report describes Task 4 of the PRISM project which was undertaken by RAND Europe, the base year implementation of the car ownership component of the PRISM model system. The implementation uses the disaggregate car ownership models used in the National Transport Model (NTM), developed initially by MVA and then subsequently by ITS Leeds for the Department for Transport.

PRISM - Park & Ride Modelling (Task 5) PRISM - Pass Ownership Modelling (Task 11)

This report describes Task 5 of the PRISM project which was undertaken by RAND Europe, the estimation of disaggregate models of public-transport access mode (including park and ride) and station choice. Initially, models of station choice only were estimated from separate train, metro and bus P&R surveys. These models provided useful insight into modelling station choice,

This report describes Task 11 of the PRISM project which was undertaken by RAND Europe, the estimation of pass ownership models. Pass ownership models have been estimated from 2001 Household Interview data to predict the pass ownership of individuals as a function of their socio-economic characteristics. This report is aimed at readers who wish to gain an understanding of the pass ownership models implemented in the PRISM model system. The report details the variables which impact upon predicted pass ownership in the models, so that readers are able to interpret the responsiveness of the PRISM pass ownership component to different policy levers. Some familiarity with disaggregate choice models is useful in understanding this document.

Report - Trip Based Destination Choice Modelling (Task 12)  

This report describes Task 12 of the PRISM project which was undertaken by RAND Europe, the estimation of models of destination choice for car-driver trips made by homebased employer’s business, non-home-based employer’s business and non-home-based other purposes. The destination choice models presented in this report are distinct from the mode and destination choice models presented in the Task 1 report in that they are trip based, not tour based, and they do not represent mode choice

Presentation given by Tom Van Vuren at the PRISM West Midlands Seminar held on 28/09/04. Gives a history and general overview of PRISM.

PRISM West Midlands Seminar - MJC Local Authority Roadshow Presentation

Local Authority Roadshow Presentation
PRISM Freight Matrix Development and Forecasting Local Government Executive

The PRISM team, represented by Serbjeet Kohli and Tom van Vuren, were invited on 26 May by the Department for Transport's ITEA Division to explain to an audience of about 15 DfT officers how the model has dealt with estimating a base year HGV and LGV trip matrix, and how the forecasting procedures work.

PRISM featured in the September issue of Local Government Executive. Tom van Vuren and Jo Baker discuss the use of the model in supporting the West Midlands TIF bid, which looks at the need for and benefits of alternative demand management issues in the West Midlands. The Article can be downloaded from the Reports section of the PRISM website

"Challenges in Transport and Communication" Blocking Back Mechanism - Paper - Presentation

At the 4th International Scientific Conference "Challenges in Transport and Communication" at the Jan Perner Transport Faculty of the University of Pardubice (CZ) Tom van Vuren presented a paper on the development and use of PRISM in regional planning and decision-making. The hierarchical toolkit now available to the Highways Agency and West Midlands Local Authorities has applicability for many city regions throughout Europe. The paper (A Transport Policy Toolkit for the Birmingham Region) can be downloaded from the Reports section of the PRISM website.

The German software developers of VISUM, ptv, presented a paper at the European Transport Conference in Strasbourg on the blocking back mechanism they developed on behalf of the PRISM Joint Application Team. The method links semi-dynamic queuing to a static equilibrium assignment model and has potential applicability for other assignment models as well. The paper can be downloaded from the Reports section of the PRISM website. Also, a presentation made on the same subject at the 2005 VISUM User Group Meeting in Karlsruhe can be downloaded from there.
