Abstract:

THE RESEARCH WILL IDENTIFY AND ANALYZE BOTH THE QUANTITATIVEAND QUALITATIVE ASPECTS OF SECURITY CHECKPOINT OPERATIONS. USING INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING TECHNIQUES, SCREENING OPERATIONS WILL BE BROKEN INTO BASIC ELEMENTS WHICH WILL THEN BE MEASURED AND INVESTIGATED TO DETERMINE THE INTERRELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SUCH COMPONENTS AS: - PROCESSING RATES - DISTRIBUTION OF PASSENGER ARRIVALS - BOARDING VOLUMES - LEVEL OF TECHNOLOGICAL SOPHISTICATION OF SCREENING EQUIPMENT THE SYSTEM WILL THEN BE OPTIMIZED USING STATISTICAL AND OPERATIONS RESEARCH TECHNIQUES. THE FINAL OBJECTIVE OF THISRESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP A PROTOTYPE SECURITY CHECKPOINT MODELTHAT VERIFIES THE FEASIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A GENERAL METHODOLOGY APPLICABLE UNDER ANY GIVEN SET OF CONDITIONS WHICH SYSTEMATICALLY OPTIMIZES ALL SECURITY CHECKPOINT VARIABLES, INCLUDING MANNING, LAYOUT, EQUIPMENT, TRAINING, AND SUPERVISION.
