Risk management in a construction project is a key but extremely complex issue. To answer it, we developed Stochastic Multi-agent simulAtion for Construction projeCt (SMACC), a simulation tool for construction project that considers risks. SMACC proposes, using an agent-based model with a stochastic approach, to assess risk consequences for each project stakeholder. This dynamic model enables to build indicators, which can be used as criteria in a decision support process. A former version of SMACC had some flaws such as a too quantitative approach, a poor modelling of resources or a high rigidity of the process description. Furthermore, formally and conceptually, the SMACC model had a weak structuration of knowledge. An improved version based on an ontology has been developed, called SMACC2. The paper presents this new version as well as a real case of application: the building of the crossroad of Bab El Karmadine at Tlemcen. © 2016 Taylor & Francis Source

This chapter focuses on the way to build a metabolic network and how to analyze its structure. The first part of this chapter describes the methods of the network model reconstruction from biochemical data found in specialized databases and/or literature. The second part deals with metabolic pathway analysis as a useful tool for better understanding the complex architecture of intracellular metabolism. The graph analysis and the stoichiometric network analysis are important approaches for understanding the network topology and consequently the function of metabolic networks. Among the methods presented, the Elementary Flux Modes analysis will be more detailed. Finally, we illustrate in this chapter an example of network reconstruction from heterotrophic plant cells metabolism and its topological analysis leading to a huge number of Elementary Flux Modes. © Springer Science+Business Media New York 2014.
