National Airspace System
For the Federal Avitation administration ,Ventana is currenty modeling the Na- tional Airspace System. This project will provid a framework for evaluating long- term infrastructure and regulatory strategy. To achieve realism without getting bogged down in massive detail, the model aggregates participants into communities, each acting in its own interests .The model takes ahigh –level approach to understanding when different system constraints become active,in order to evaluate potential poli- cies for their system-wide effects on all constituencies .Data connectivity and knowl- edge management technology for this project are being provided by IBM.
For aleading information technology provider, ventana modeled the potential Behaviors of B2B e-markets . crucial model aspects included the effects of market un- certainty,and the effects of choices made by individual businesseson on the general economy. By examining the bottom-line effects for all participants in different B2B market models, Ventana determine which designs and price structures could make participants successful,and which could not.
