Effects of Baggage Volume and Alarm Rate on Airport Security Screening Checkpoint Efficiency Using Queuing Networks and Discrete Event Simulation

As airline passenger traffic increases, it is important to understand the effect baggage volume and rates of alarms have on efficient processing at security screening checkpoints (SSCPs). This study used both theoretical and empirical methods to understand SSCP: queuing theory and discrete event simulation. It investigates the role of external factors such as baggage volume and the number of alarms leading to manual inspections. While external factors may be uncontrollable, investigating their effects may allow for adjustments to internal factors to improve system performance.
