Optimization of the Aircraft Ground Handling Process
Aircraft ground handling is a process that includes all the operations that must be performed on an aircraft when parking on a stand. The aim of the article is to discuss the optimization possibilities of the aircraft ground handling process. The core of the contribution consists of a description of the activities carried out during the aircraft ground handling process, their timing and order. In the aircraft ground handling process, it is also important to determine the factors that affect the performance of these processes. Finally, the problem solution is outlined using a network analysis method and changing the constraints to optimize the aircraft ground handling process for the Boeing 737-300 aircraft and creating a timetable of activities with their timing and exact order.
