Multi-Agent Based Simulation for Boarding

  title={Multi-Agent Based Simulation for Boarding},
  author={Jan Audenaert and Katja Verbeeck and Greet Vanden Berghe},
Optimizing the boarding process is one way for the airline industry to reduce the cost of the total air plane turn time i.e. the time between landing and take off. For this aim, boarding strategies that control when a passenger is allowed to board the plane are developed in order to reduce the overall boarding time. These strategies should be passenger friendly and robust to all kinds of disturbances. In this paper, boarding strategies are analyzed using multi-agent based simulation. Passengers… CONTINUE READING
