AIRPORT SURFACE TRAFFIC CONTROL CONCEPT FORMULATION STUDY. VOLUME III. OPERATIONS ANALYSIS OF O'HARE AIRPORT-PART II
The volume presents the results of the quantitative analyses of the O'Hare ASTC System operations. The operations environments for the periods selected for detailed analysis of the ASDE films and controller communications recording are described. Following this, results of the data analyses are presented for the areas of: (1) Aircraft flow analysis, including traffic flow statistics for the ramp, ground taxi, and local control areas; (2) Controller workload analysis, both communications and non-communications; and, (3) Cockpit crew workload analysis, both communications and non-communications. The volume also presents the results of the operations effectiveness analysis for the current O'Hare ASTC system and for the projected future operating environment at O'Hare. The results for the current system include both quantitative and qualitative analysis of the operations observed using the data derived from the functional activity analysis of system operation. The salient findings of this study effort and the conclusions and recommendations derived from these findings are presented.
