72 Recent research associated with the production of the Terminal Planning Spreadsheet Models has found substantial documentation on the availability of simulation models and model-making systems for passenger terminal planners. Several of the simulation models available for use are based on these model-making systems. When a more detailed level of estimation is required, a simulation model may provide the planner with more specific infor- mation and greater detail but will also require more time and a greater financial cost to the planner. The following models are commercially available for use by passenger terminal planners and designers to support terminal space programs or validate alternative plans and designs: â¢ PAXSIM, Boeing (Preston Group), Melbourne, Victoria, Australiaâa continuous simu- lation model for the movements of passengers and baggage within the passenger terminal building. â¢ EDS-SIM, Jacobs Consultancy, San Francisco, Californiaâa continuous simulation model focused on automated baggage screening systems. â¢ Flow-Model, Jacobs Consultancy, San Francisco, Californiaâan analytical model focused on the movement of passengers and baggage from ticketing through passenger and baggage secu- rity screening. â¢ TRACS (Terminal, Roadway and Curbside Simulation), Transolutions, Inc. Ft. Worth, Texasâa continuous flow simulation model that covers all passenger and baggage movements inside the terminal building and covers vehicle movements on the terminal curbside. â¢ Total AirportSim (TASM), Transolutions, Inc. Ft. Worth, Texasâa single-package continu- ous simulation model that covers all aspects of airport operations (aircraft, passengers, bag- gage, vehicles) within a single simulation model. â¢ ARCport ALT, Aviation Research Corporation, Point Roberts, Washingtonâa discrete event simulation model that models aircraft gate movements, passenger movements inside the terminal building, and baggage handling. â¢ ServiceModel, Ricondo & Associates, Chicago, Illinoisâa discrete event simulation model that evaluates the movement of inbound and outbound passengers and baggage in the passenger terminal building. â¢ TAS, International Air Transport Associationâa mathematical algorithm that evaluates air- craft, passenger, baggage, and vehicle movements on aircraft aprons and within terminal buildings â¢ BaggageâSystems, Transolutions, Ft. Worth, Texasâa continuous simulation model for outbound baggage make-up (Automod model). â¢ CAST Terminal, Airport Research Center, GmbH, Aachen, Germanyâa dynamic multi- agent simulation tool.
