Lift model of Lucerne scenario Meurig Beynon Cheryl Sidebotham Model of interesting scenario involving a lift This is a model of an interesting scenario that Meurig encountered whilst at a conference in Lucerne in 1988, when he and two other delegates all managed to get out of the lift at the wrong floor through a series of interlocking mistakes. It uses many definitions and is a good example of the definitive style and is a good representation of Meurig's construal of the situation. This is explained in the accompanying paper "Radical Empiricism, Empirical Modelling and the nature of knowing". It also includes some automation: files introduced at later stages cause "the lift" to open "it's own" doors and so on. Unfortunately the tkeden tool was not designed for a multi-agent simulation such as this and there are various problems: a delay has been introduced to slow the model to a speed where the scenario can be seen progressing... but the way the delay is modelled, /all/ agents are paused whilst the delay is active.
