Katz Drago employees a wide range of design technologies that employ Dynamic Simulation Systems (kdDSS) when designing elevator systems
for all kinds and sizes of project types. kdDSS runs elevator systems as in real life, with cars responding to car-calls,
hall-calls and traffic peaks - within a system that audits all traffic, user and system phenomena. kdDSS will cover single or
double-deck systems; dual in-shaft cabs; hard or soft split-groups, and inter-split sharing. kdDSS has been 'reality-tested'
over the full range of small to mega-projects, with excellent results - and is particularly useful at anticipating service problems
that are otherwise undetectable with any of the traditional calculative methods.
kdDSS helps achieve optimal core designs, with
Architect and Owner confident of meeting the projected traffic requirements - providing a heavily expanded list of revealing service
parameters that cannot be obtained with traditional calculations. Even though most consultants transpose simplistic calculations
onto computers to gain calculation speed - these transpositions do not improve design insight. Further kdDSS eliminates gross
assumptions & unrealistic traffic modeling required to support the limitations of cacluative methods - ensuring more suitable
The depth of exploration available with kdDSS is such as to facilitate the thorough study of elevator systems under:
Varying traffic intensities and profiles; single and simultaneous special facility loads (e.g.: trading floors, restaurants, meeting
rooms, congress facilities), mutliple lobbies; lower and intermediate parking facilites; car groups serving varyious floor schedules;
single and multiple transfer floors; simultaneous people and bulk loads, etc.
