A multi-disciplinary approach for the design and management of airport terminals

By Tristan Kleinschmidt, Ashantha Goonetilleke, Clinton B. Fookes and Prasad K.D.V. Yarlagadda


Multi-disciplinary approaches to complex problems are becoming more common – they enable criteria manifested in distinct (and potentially conflicting) domains to be jointly balanced and satisfied. In this paper we present airport terminals as a case study which requires multi-disciplinary knowledge in order to balance conflicting security, economic and passenger-driven needs and\ud correspondingly enhance the design, management and operation of airport terminals. The need for a truly multi-disciplinary scientific approach which integrates information, process, people, technology and space domains is highlighted through a brief discussion of two challenges currently faced by airport operators. The paper outlines\ud the approach taken by this project, detailing the aims and objectives of each of seven diverse research programs
