OPTIMIZATION OF MULTI-RUNWAY SEQUENCING AND SCHEDULING
In the air traffic world aircraft operators have to cope with growing delays. These delays are mainly caused by operating airports against their maximum capacity. It is therefore useful to study methods for improving the efficiency of airport operations. To do this, the sequence and schedules of arriving and departing aircraft are optimized for airports with three runways. Models representing different airport layouts are developed and optimized using Mixed Interger Programming (MIP). To study the potential advantages of using Network Programming techniques for the optimizations, simplified versions of the models are written in network form and optimized using these techniques. For the optimization with the MIP technique CPLEX software is used. For the optimization with the Network Programming technique the LSNNO FORTRAN subroutine is used.
