You will gain confidence matching models to specific project requirements, developing realistic costs and programmes for their delivery, and maximising the value of the modelling investment. The one day course is delivered as a series of workshop sessions that are designed to provide maximum opportunity for you to ask questions and share any previous experiences, lessons learned etc.
Please note: The course is not tied to a particular software program and is intended to provide transferable lessons that are relevant now and in the foreseeable future. However, the course contents can be tailored to particular software (e.g. TUFLOW, Flood Modeller-2D, JFlow, InfoWorks, MIKE FLOOD).
This course is aimed at:
- Procurers of 1D/2D and 2D modelling projects
- Project managers with responsibility for delivery of 1D/2D and 2D modelling projects.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
- Match modelling approaches to project requirements
- Develop realistic costs and programmes for delivery
- Provide intelligent challenges to typical modelling issues that may arise
- Maximise the value of your (or your client’s) investment in modelling solutions
