Bus stations, train stations and airports sometimes have to exceed their operational capacity. The decisions, plans and predictions made for such a structure during the design process fail to sufficiently meet the requirements in time once the structure is started to be used.
An airport is a place that requires a great investment. There may be operational restrictions in design and planning when an airport actively operates. Simulation technologies help you protect your investments from risk and go beyond any restrictions to analyze and plan.
The main purpose of airport traffic forecasts and simulations in airports that are planned or in use is to prevent clutter, to save time, to increase efficiency and revenue, and to provide users with sufficient capacities.
Simulation is a set of methods that analyze and model different scenarios and relationships between units / variables, based on statistical distributions. Airport simulation is the process of creating an abstract model in computer environment to represent the reality of an airport.
Nowadays, the need for efficiency in airports is greater than ever while security and labor costs continue to increase every year. Successful airport authorities should ensure that costs associated with personnel, equipment and new technologies are taken into account and optimized. In essence, an airport simulation offers a cheap and risk-free way to test your existing terminal layout and security areas to meet passenger terminal targets at the lowest cost and lowest security risk possible.
CAST, a scalable and modular aviation software solution, offers simulation, allocation and optimization systems for pedestrian traffic, vehicle traffic and aircraft traffic as well as for process models of landside, terminal, airside and airspace. Using CAST reduces the cost for investments and operations, speeds up decision-making and planning processes, and supports smooth, safe and punctual operations.
ARC (Airport Research Center) GmbH is an independent, global provider of professional airport and aviation consultancy, offering planning and decision support services. Developed and powered by ARC, CAST is a customized software suite of services that enable you to control and optimize terminal resources and processes, taking into account the customer requirements and the individual situation of an airport.
Using CAST reduces the cost for investments and operations, speeds up decision-making and planning processes, and supports smooth, safe and punctual operations. The CAST solutions seamlessly cover strategic and tactical planning as well as operational and real-time optimization.
Among other advantages, it enables you to:
CAST solutions offer modules for real-time forecast-based airport management, including operational and real-time optimization as well as strategic and tactical planning.
Haritaevi is the supplier of terminal capacity simulation software for the General Directorate of State Airports Authority (DHMI) that performs the construction and operation works of the majority of the airports in Turkey. Our team has experienced the airport simulation program CAST with the application it has made for Trabzon Airport. The original drawings of the domestic and international terminals to be used in the scope of the study are arranged to be used in CAST software in the CAD environment. Real flight and passenger data have been used and different scenario techniques have been tried in creating the simulation flow chart. In the studies on the analysis modules, densities and jams were observed and the terminals were interpreted according to the outputs produced from these modules. The flowcharts, passenger profiles, density of non-travellers, etc. can be modified and improved depending on the scenario the user wants to use.
