Rule: Passengers within sectors cannot blend or co-mingle!
This innovative design resulted in
shared hallways, gateways, pathways, areas and doors!
Implementation of Swing Gate Design
Our job is done!
Not an architectural problem – passenger flows complete!
We want minimal costs and little manpower for this!
What do planners, architects and operators do
when they have problems?
Give the problems to I.T!
IT inherited five major challenges:
1. Leading edge technology versus building design
2. Determine corridor change logic
3. Sector intelligence and data
4. Balance between automation and manual
5. Obtain Stakeholder Sign Off
First Challenge: Leading Edge Technology meets Building Design
Building design needs applied technology
(Security and Controls)
CCTV and Access Control System
Related risk: Terminal Renumbering and Available Data
Challenge four: Degree of Automation / “IRROP”
Balance of Automation and Manual Processes
- Cameras fail
- Door Motors Fail
Solution: Contingency / Continuity Plans developed
Operations run late!
Don’t want doors to swing
in middle of boarding or deplaning!
Solution: Airline process finalizing flight
Challenge five: External Stakeholder sign off
Development of custom elements
- Custom Console
