Creating and Validating a Microscopic Pedestrian Simulation to Analyze an Airport Security Checkpoint

Aim of this simulation case study is to analyze waiting times and throughput at the security checkpoint of an international medium sized airport. The simulations shall provide the airport operator with the ability to easily change main impact parameters of an airport security checkpoint e.g. to test new security procedures, a flightplan with more passengers and also to optimize the security operation schedule. The simulation is implemented with the microscopic pedestrian simulation and social force model of Anylogic. To achieve validation, Anylogic’s Pedestrian Libarary is tailored and extended for specific needs of the simulated airport.
