Traditional Traffic Demand Analysis as implemented in most commercial tools operate given variations of the so called four-step model. During this four-stepped modelling process origin-destination matrices are generated as output. With a rising amount of computation power, so called agent-based simulation tools are emerging. Here the traffic demand is not generated using a statistical model, but the decisions of each agent is evaluated in a simulation framework. In agent-based simulation frameworks more information is necessary, for example, complete activity chains for each agent. In this thesis a novel method for generating activity chains from origin-desination matrices is explored and compared with traditional demand forecasting methods.
