Abstract
In this paper, The Generalized Stochastic Petri Net simulation model is established to analyze the flow of passengers, bottlenecks, potential modifications, cultural differences' influence, and several recommendations are given to security managers.First, the current security checkpoint process in US airport is subdivided into 9 steps which are more detailed. The Generalized Stochastic Petri Net is built to analyze the flow of passengers considering the Synchronization and Concurrency of passenger's security check process, with time parameter contained also. The Average Token which illustrates the average time consumption in the nine check steps is shown in Table 1. The steps in which the Token value is big are seemed as the critical step. The Monte Carlo method is adapted then to analyze the bottlenecks in check process. The simulation result (in Table 4) shows the time cost in each critical step, and the bottlenecks are found lying in three aspects: Open-package inspection, Body screening and Retrieving luggage.
