Abstract
More so than engineered systems, human factors, and specifically having humans-in-the-loop, can lead to unforeseen behaviours resulting in unexpected organizational failures. In the world of emergency response, these failures may be related not only to response activities, but also to information processing and sharing that consequently undermine the organizational ecosystems’ situational awareness of unfolding events. The TIF project, Modelling Public Security Operations, has the goal of accounting for the human factor by more fully exploring its inherent complexity through experiments and simulations. This report presents the design, implementation and results of a Holistic Security Ecosystem (HSE) simulator for representing organizations and decision making processes and the impact of key social, cognitive and informational factors. Earlier research investigated key factors, processes, and simulation methodologies.
