In operational airline crew scheduling, one of the major tasks is to allocate flight activities to individual crew members. This task is referred to as the crew rostering problem; an optimization problem that aims to assign flights to crew members in a cost-effective way, while also considering preferences of crewmembers. Flights are combined...

Tilt-rotor aircraft combine the helicopter’s benefit of VTOL capability and the flight performance that turboprops possess on range, speed and endurance. Tilt-rotor aircraft have the potential to decrease airport congestion and average flight delay in passenger transportation, while benefits are numerous in i.e. search and rescue, disaster...

The newest generation of aircraft has seen a strong increase in sensor data generated on-board. The available data has the potential to indicate the health state of individual components based on which their maintenance requirements can be determined, a maintenance strategy called Condition Based Maintenance. Predictive Maintenance is a specific...

Ever since the attacks on the World Trade Center, airport security has been a topic of interest. The United States was caught by surprise and the attacks triggered a renewed interest in aviation security. It was well recognized that airport security was one step behind on intelligent attackers and this created the need to developed better risk...

Resilience can be understood as the intrinsic ability of a system to adapt its functioning prior to, during, or following changes and disturbances, so that it can sustain required operations and performance under both expected and unexpected conditions. The need to explore the concept of resilience, in the context of socio-technical systems, is...

The two performance areas “security” and “efficiency” in airport security operations cannot be analyzed apart from each other, since influencing one has a large impact on the other. In this research agent-based modelling is used to analyze dynamic relations and trade-offs between security and efficiency within airport security operations....

In this thesis, a contribution has been made to the development of a simulation framework which is capable of realistically simulating market dynamics with respect to competition and passenger choice in the European aviation market. In total, 22 routes have been included into the simulation framework, with airports including those in Amsterdam,...

This MSc thesis presents a stochastic modelling approach to the multi-period airline fleet planning problem. Approximate Dynamic Programming (ADP) is used to model the impact of demand uncertainty on fleet decisions. The proposed ADP algorithm applies local value function approximations resulting from Gaussian kernel regressions to estimate...

Airports are highly complex systems that can generate economic growth<br/>on their own. Accordingly, airports should take proactive actions to<br/>create a status quo between the stakeholders(the airport itself,<br/>airlines, passengers) in the tactical planning of the aircraft stand<br/>allocation. Namely, the harmonization between the...

In aircraft maintenance, the initial maintenance schedule of an aircraft is highly dependent on the maintenance planning document. This document, set up by manufacturers, regulators and operators, contains all the requirements for the initial maintenance schedule of a specific aircraft. It serves as a reference for the development of an...

With the increase of air traffic demand, the terminal airspace becomes more and more congested. Future air transport systems are expected to handle increasingly heavy demand on air traffic, especially in a highly constrained terminal airspace. Therefore, the realizable capacity of current terminal airspace is a challenge for future air transport...

Pioneering work reinvents the parameters of the possible, and violates the laws of the impossible. Though space exploration is an expanding topic, the future missions to the Moon are the firsts to have humans and automated systems working together to explore new terrains. Preparing the future of human-robotic integrated space operations is a...

The purpose of this research was to create a good assessment of the possible benefits and costs of System Wide Information Management (SWIM). This assessment was demanded by several stakeholders in order to convince them to invest in this new technology. By creating a general methodology this process can easily be redone by others for their...

In the last decades, the airline industry experienced a tendency towards airspace deregulation. When airspace is liberalized, the airlines in the market have to re-position themselves the market since new airlines are expected to offer flights in the market. More competition asks for optimal revenue management and positioning of the flights so...

How does an organization that is mainly used to conduct maintenance to its aircraft according to manufacturers prescriptions adapt a method with which they can change and optimize their maintenance policies? This thesis report describes the state of the art in maintenance- and related reliability engineering that is used to obtain a step-by-step...

This thesis deals with an important resource planning problem at airports: the stand allocation problem. More specifically, it is aimed to obtain a robust tactical stand allocation for the airport, at limited cost. We incorporate the concept of recoverable robustness in a stand allocation model and formulate a recoverable robust stand allocation...

One of the daily operations that a civil airplane goes through is the turnaround of ground handling process or what commonly known as the turnaround process. By improving the performance of the turnaround process, there would be multiple benefits for the airlines and the airports, costs can be saved and more profit can be created due to higher...
