  • Holistische Optimierung von Trajektorien und Runway Scheduling

    (Third Party Funds Group – Sub project)

    Overall project: Holistische Optimierung von Trajektorien und Runway Scheduling
    Term: 01-09-2018 - 31-08-2021
    Funding source: Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Technologie (BMWi)

    Efficient runway utilization is a major issue in airport operation, as capacities are (nearly) reached in many aiports. But planing is highly affected by uncertainties arising from weather changes or disruptions in the operative business. Furthermore, the planing of flight trajectories in the terminal region is by now often neglected in runway scheduling, as time efficient solution methods are mathematically challenging. The overall goal of this project is to combine trajectory and runway schedule computation including resilience against uncertainties in order to obtain stable optimal solutions.
