ANALYSIS FOR THE DESIGN OF BAGGAGE HANDLING SYSTEMS AT AIRPORTS

The first purpose of this study is to examine characteristics of baggage equipment that should be considered in the planning of new systems. Operating characteristics, space requirements, flexibility, impact on passengers, and costs of present and emerging systems are compared. The second purpose compares two techniques for modeling the outbound system in terms of usefulness for planning purposes. The two techniques are monte carlo simulation (probabilistic) and deterministic queuing (non-probabilistic).
