Modelling for Non-Modellers, GlasgowBook Now
Start Date:30/08/2016 09:00:00
End Date:31/08/2016 09:00:00
Event Code:PTRC0428

The modelling of junctions, road networks and public transport systems provides fundamental information to support decisions taken on future land uses, investment in the transport system and other policy interventions. With modelling tools ranging from “simple” equations through to highly complex mathematical, algorithm based systems, many people responsible for commissioning modelling activities find modelling a daunting area of responsibility. This course provides an introduction to the modelling tools commonly used, providing delegates with an understanding of the applicability of different models to various situations, and equips practitioners with simple techniques for checking model outputs.

DVSA Earned Recognition Concept - DVSA Operator ExcellenceBook Now
Start Date:01/09/2016 18:30:00
End Date:01/09/2016 20:00:00
Event Code:SFKG0306

When: Thursday 1 September 2016, 18:00 (for 18:30) - 20:00 - This event was originally scheduled for 21/07/2016
Where: Bartrums Group, Langton Green, Eye, IP23 7HN - Directions
Meeting Point: Reception

Speaker: Philip Lapczuk, Project Manager, Earner Recognition, DVSA

The DVSA has exciting developments in the pipeline.  The precise timing are to be confirmed, but likely in the next 12 months we will see the emergence of a new system of self-regulation for the UK heavy goods road transport sector.

What will this mean to you?

If you are a road haulier you will be able to apply for "recognised carrier" status.  Subsequently if your application is accepted you will be able to use tachograph and maintenance records to monitor compliance.  Registered hauliers will not feature in the Operator Risk Score Rating (OCSR) will face fewer checks, and consequently be more productive.

If you are a buyer of road haulage you will be able to see who is "recognised".  This will help inform your haulier selection, and in time could become a key feature of your organisation's future corporate social responsibility strategy.

DVSA has already run feasibility trials.  Come along to hear from Philip what will be the data key inputs, how the scoring system is anticipated to operate.  Planning is also in progress to give you a demonstration of the system!

A light buffet will also be provided.
