Arena Simulation Modelling Report

Airplane Arrival and Takeoff Simulation

Objectives and Criteria

This report is intended to address a specific Arena simulation modelling process. The modelling approach and process focuses on the development of runway use. The results of the simulation with regard to key performance factors will be illustrated. Finally, suggestions of how to improve performance indicators with runway and terminal utilisation, WIP, noise pollution and waiting times and queues both in the air and on the ground with access to terminals will be made.

The following objectives will also be addressed:

Doubling the Number of Operated Planes

With respect to maintaining or minimising emission levels and doubling the number of the arrival and departure planes, one suggestion is reducing the time of each process. Suppose the arrival and departure of planes conforming to the same exponential distribution times, and try to shorten all process time to half of its original time in the new model. By running the new model, results show that Number in for both types of planes has increased to 3.84 and 2.93 times.

Conclusion

An airport operation simulation model was created in accordance with the requirements. By running the model, runway and terminal utilisation, WIP, noise pollution and waiting times and queues both in the air and on the ground with access to terminals are illustrated and discussed. An improved model is also proposed by analysing the performance of the existing model, and its performance regarding the above categories is also included. Finally, how to double the number of processed airplanes in the airport is given.
