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.
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.
