An elevator goes up and down. That seems simple enough, but there is more to it, much more. Suppose we have a bank of elevators serving 15 or 16 rooms on each of the 34 floors in a busy downtown hotel. Suppose we have to be prepared to operate in the fire mode. Suppose we'd like to give priority to calls from certain floors. Maybe we'd like to keep a history of every move our elevators make for later analysis.
