Stochastic optimal integration of hub airport technological resources

Cite item


The problem of defining the optimum structure and number of sets of airport technological resources intended for the performance of an individual operation of aircraft servicing and its loading is solved in a stochastic setting. The peculiarities of aircraft flows of a hub airport and strict requirements imposed upon the quality of hub airport ground service are considered. The maximum of the parameter that characterizes the efficiency of a set of resources is chosen as the optimality criterion. Limits are imposed on the productivity levels of the set and the quality of its ground handling operations. The approach that made it possible to establish the connection between the constraint parameters is described. The optimization problem is reduced to a stochastic programming problem that can be solved by methods of numerical probabilistic analysis. The solution of the problem of integration of resources of a hub airport’s functional subsystem intended for refueling airplanes is presented as an illustration. The results of the solution testify to essential influence of the stochastic character of airport processes on optimum characteristics of sets of technological resources.
