A problem definition process is discussed which consists of initially indentifying as many constraints and variables as possible in close working relationships with representatives in the broad range of influences (the community, the airlines, the airport manager, the airport commission, and government regulatory agencies) which impact on the design and planning of passenger terminal facilities. The second step is to develop an incremental decision making process from this initial definition, which consists of enumerating the concerns of each of the participants, striking a logical balance between the several influences and reducing the variables to a manageable few. The variables are further evaluated until the most appropriate solution to the problem at hand is found. This process is applied to the master plan for the Singapore International Airport.
