Improving Airport Security Screening System in Terms of Efficiency and Fairness Via Network Model
In this paper, we focus on a dual-objective task of maximizing the airport throughput, efficiency, and reducing the inconvenience to travelers, fairness. Based on the real screening data collected, we construct a network model to make a precise analysis aiming to help figure out a set of efficient strategies. After evaluating the performance of these methods and taking feasibility into consideration, we find that modifying the group security process can improve the overall efficiency of the airport screening system while maintaining the good experience for each passenger.
