Manpower Planning for Maintenance Crew at SFO

PI Massoud Bazargan

The objective of this project is to optimize the use of maintenance manpower at San Francisco International Airport for efficient use of available resources and reduce flight delays.

The project uses simulation for one full day of an airline's operations. The simulation model developed can identify the number of delays as well as the total time of delays that may occur throughout the system due to shortage of maintenance workforce
