Abstract
With the rapid development of transportation, we are entering the era of large population distribution. Thus, how to optimize the passenger throughput at an airport security checkpoint has become a universal concern. This paper first builds up a Petri Net model which is based on random Generalized Stochastic Petri Net theory and Markov theory to describe security service process. Then this model is transformed into GSPN model for simplification under the premise of determining the structural reliability of the model. Based on the data given in the excel, we analyze the current process of security checkpoint. Finally, we identify bottlenecks existing in airport by analyzing the average tokens.
