Country of Origin
Date of Development
NISMOD (National Infrastructure Systems Model) is a system-of-systems modelling platform that works in three main domains: (1) long-term strategic infrastructure planning, (2) infrastructure for sustainable development and (3) risk and resilience assessment. It serves to develop interdependent infrastructure systems models based on different development scenarios and strategies for infrastructure provision and to develop and measure the metrics of (future) infrastructure performance. The platform comprises simulation models of (1) infrastructure systems, (2) integration frameworks and libraries to enable analysis, and (3) databases and systems to manage datasets, model configuration, inputs and outputs, all contributing to evidenced-based and integrated decision-making at upstream level.
NISMOD provides decision-makers with interdependent infrastructure systems models that enable evidence-based decision-making at the upstream level of infrastructure development, integrating the targets and demands of different sectors and regions and considering different development scenarios.
NISMOD creates interdependent infrastructure systems models that integrate the infrastructure development needs across six sectors:
– Solid waste
– Digital communications
