Parking systems design is an iterative process wherein designers propose, evaluate, and modify alternatives, progressively moving towards a solution. Developments in personal computers provide the basis for constructing quick, inexpensive computer-aided design (CAD) procedures that can evaluate large numbers of alternatives and provide immediate feedback. Recent developments in microcomputers, graphics, and parking system models provide a mechanism for answering these questions. These models consist of the system specification, system simulation, and measures of performance. The overall set of procedures accessed by the suite can be presented in a main menu. Menus provide a flexible interactive medium for obtaining guidance by the user. The main menu enables the user to move into the input, run simulation, or output stage of the program. This article focuses on the systems input and output of parking system models.
