This article describes a comprehensive operational tool with which both short-term and long-term system capacity improvements can be identified and quantified, with reference to both the air and ground elements. In addition to measuring both hardware and airport design characteristics, the tool includes operating procedures as an integral part of the program permitting various tradeoff studies involving procedures in relation to other system elements. The Aviation System Simulation Model (ASSM) is a time-and event-based simulation capability fully reflecting real-world operating conditions and is capable of performing a variety of complicated studies of airspace and airport conditions in a matter of a few minutes.
