Through several contractions, stiff competition, and increasing passenger expectations, airports must evolve continually. One of the main avenues for this has been improving the efficiency of the security check- points, which are airports’ primary bottlenecks. Operational optimisation methods, such as resource and task scheduling are relatively...

Designing agent-based models is a difficult task. Some guidelines exist to aid modelers in designing their models, but they generally do not include specific details on how the behavior of agents can be defined. This paper therefore proposes the AbCDe methodology, which uses causal discovery algorithms to specify agent behavior. The methodology...

Airport security checkpoints are the most important bottleneck in airport operations, but few studies aim to empirically understand them better. In this work we address this lack of data-driven quantitative analysis and insights about the security checkpoint process. To this end, we followed a total of 2277 passengers through the security...

Airports are attractive targets for terrorists, as they are designed to accommodate and process large amounts of people, resulting in a high concentration of potential victims. A popular method to mitigate the risk of terrorist attacks is through security patrols, but resources are often limited. Game theory is commonly used as a methodology...

Agent-based modelling and simulation has shown to be a suitable paradigm for analyzing complex airport systems, such as airport security checkpoints. The models can be used to analyze important airport terminal performance areas, such as security and efficiency. However, limited knowledge exists on how agent-based models can be used to aid...

Modern airports operate under high demands and pressures, and strive to satisfy many diverse, interrelated, sometimes conflicting performance goals. Airport performance areas, such as security, safety, and efficiency are usually studied separately from each other. However, operational decisions made by airport managers often impact several...

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....

This Master Thesis document presents a research on trade-off analysis between security and efficiency factors during airport operations. Over the past few decades there has been an increase in security in the air transportation industry, with even more measures taken since 9/11. Besides affecting the operational costs of airports, the stricter...

The thought of being secure has been on the minds of people throughout history. Security is the protection against intended incidents. Intended incidents happen due to a result of a deliberate and planned act. Security systems are implemented in order to set up security precautions which have as main goal the protection of all assets present...

Using Schiphol’s Security Scanner is confusing for a lot of passengers. Therefore, security agents currently have to fully take on the task of guiding the passenger through the Scanner. This repetitive task in the high volume environment of Schiphol security leads to physical and mental exhaustion and results in frustration, which is projected...

Participant observation is a method to collect information through active participation in the social world that is under study, in this case two different risk-related working areas where confidentiality and secrecy are paramount. In reality there is a difference between what people do and say they do. With participant observation this...

Airport security systems are built up out of layers of defence based on the security-in-depth model (Talbot & Jakeman, 2008). The Transport Safety Authority (TSA) in the United States defined a staggering 20 layers of defence to control security risks. This means that not only security personnel is responsible for security at the airport but...
