Finding an efficient knowledge-based simulation model for checked baggage security screening systems in airports
MetadataShow full item record
In Aviation Security or Airport Security, screening of check-in bags in order to detect any threat or explosive, is a major area of concern for the governmental authorities as well as the academicians. Checked-in Bags Security System generally sits on a big terminal facility consisting conveyors, truck stations and most importantly, Explosives Detection System (EDS) machines and other peripheral machines and computers. It is often considered that, in the process of security screening, high level of security measures are often inversely related to speed of the checking process and thus, reduces the efficiency of the process. Simulation modeling and analysis can be a perfect tool to determine the level of security, the impact of that security on the efficiency of the system and suggesting new ways of modeling and determining cost-effective yet high secured airport security system. Hence, the main purpose of this research is to find ways and parameters to design and build an Airport Bags Security System model based on real data and analyze the model from a security-efficient perspective to determine the main indicators of operational efficiency of the system such as Bags Travel Time or Window Length of Airport.
