AIRPORT IMPROVEMENT TASK FORCE DELAY STUDY: DELAY MODEL VALIDATION PLAN

A validation plan is presented for an airside simulation model. The plan stresses basic principles of validation and inherent problems associated with comparing simulation model delay estimates with observable real-world data. A methodology is proposed that consists of three major steps: (1) evaluation of model logic, inputs, and outputs; (2) comparison of model estimates with collected data; and (3) a sensitivity analysis of the delay simulation model. A Model Validation Group, established to oversee the validation process, is described. Suggestions are given on sources of data on airside operations for model inputs and for comparisons with model estimates. (Author)
