Analysis & Evaluation Overview
The mission of Analysis and Evaluation (A&E) in the framework of the STM Validation project is to facilitate the validation of the STM concepts, through the quantification of the benefits associated with STM implementation. With this aim, the requirements for data collection and the methods for evaluation are assessed and defined within an entity called “Information Environment”.
The Information Environment consists on the ensemble of the different methodologies used for the organization of the information expected to be collected during the course of the Test Beds designed in STM Validation Project, with the aim of analysing and extracting conclusive statements that could facilitate the demonstration of the benefits of implementing Sea Traffic Management globally.
The following structure illustrates and explains in each layer, from the bottom to the top, the steps followed in the construction of the Information Environment for STM Analysis & Evaluation.
