The Security Screening Process Optimization based on Cellular Automatan Model

Zi-Hui Zhang, Hui-Nan Zhu, Gang He and Xiu-Fen Wan

As the passenger throughput of airport is increasing, the security check of airport is confronting great pressure. In order to improve the efficiency of security check, this paper is to simulate the queuing process of security check through constructing cellular automaton model in order to get the indexes that influence security screening process. Here, we use cellular automaton to simulate the security screening process of different throughput. We can qualitatively determine the bottleneck of the whole process. As to the bottleneck, we can randomly shunt passengers who are going to enter the bottleneck to reduce congestion. Otherwise, different cultural backgrounds generate different social norms which show the time differences in security check. Therefore, we can divide passengers into 3 types and they would be shunted to 3 proprietary lanes. Later, after considering passenger composition type, the efficiency of airport staff, airlines costs and so on, we give some proposals on how to optimize security screening process.
