Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis: Beijing South Railway Station


Article Preview

Beijing South Railway Station is an integrated system, the evaluation of which should involve not only the inner transfer condition, but also the connection in the road network. To make a more comprehensive and scientific evaluation of the station, we select various criteria, including not only the static indicators, but also the dynamic indicators. Then we build a three-level hierarchy index structure to evaluate the performance of the inner and outside performance of Beijing South Railway Station. For the inner part, we apply Extension Theory to for evaluation. Then we use VISSIM to simulate the condition of the station in the road network.
