Airport Security Planning

The importance of security planning in airports

THE IMPORTANCE OF SECURITY PLANNING IN AIRPORTS

Security planning in airports is one of the most important aspects of operational planning. Airports handle a lot of passengers every day. Therefore, airport security needs to be thorough and fast in order to handle a lot of people quickly. 

At Copenhagen Optimization we are specialized in developing optimization software for airports. Everyday our software helps airports around the world forecasting passenger flows and plan staff resources and infrastructure allocation to make sure they fit the number of passengers at every hour. In fact, we can predict the demand down to five-minute increments.

On this page you can read more about the importance of security planning and how we help airports improve their planning of security operations.

Why implement security planning in an airport?

An airport is a place where many people, both passengers and staff, are present at the same time. Often many passengers create long queues if the number of staff in security or check in is not adapted to the passenger flow. But how will you know when there are many passengers in the airport and when there are few that need a security check? And how do you use that knowledge to improve your security planning?

 

In these situations, the importance of security planning is very visible. The solution is having a well-developed planning security tool. Security planning uses the forecasted passenger flows to predict how many lanes you need to have open, when they should open and how much staff you need to do the security checks.

 

An efficient security planning software solution is important to adapt the security checkpoint and staff resources to the varying number of passengers, in order to give the passengers the best experience of the airport

Key features

With the key features of the Better Security module you will be able to:

Plan in two ways. Depending on whether the x-ray machine or the security scanner is the bottleneck, you can do planning in images or passengers.

Optimize lane opening or lane closing plans depending on the service level needed in the security checkpoint area.

Staff demand optimizing depending on the passenger flow.

Plan using the same methodology regarding capacity, budget, lane and staff planning and execution of daily operations.

Cloud-based software accessible from every part of the airport.

Always up to date with any new upgrades.

Better Security provides better planning
Our security planning software Better Security is developed to help our clients plan and execute every part of their security checkpoint operations.

 

By implementing our planning software, you will be able to handle and optimize every phase of the airport security check. From passenger queuing lanes to adapting staff resources to the passenger flow.

A security planning software like ours is fundamental for improving the security operation in your airport. Together we will make sure our tool will help you to develop a better airport security experience.

Benefits of planning security operations

Our security planning software will provide several benefits such as adapted allocation of staff resources, automation of manual processes, and strong data driven planning tool.

In other words, you will experience the importance of security planning when implementing our security software.

Key benefits

The benefits of the Copenhagen Optimization security planning software, Better Security, are:

You will be able to plan security operations right the first time.

Easier adaptation of staff resources to passenger flows.

All relevant users can access every part of the software easily. Everything from capacity planner forecasts and budget to staff resources and to the dispatcher on the day of operation.

High degree of automation eliminates manual processes

Data can easily be transferred from forecasting system and to staff planning system.

A solid planning security tool which reduces dependency on individual staff members.

Staff planning and execution: 

Better Security gives you the ability to lower the peak demand for security staff – by deliberately planning with queues in the peak and optimizing the break execution. The software also gives full transparency on how staff demand is created.

 

The plans for staff and lanes respectively work in tandem, enhancing the user’s ability to plan for the appropriate number of staff based on the lane configuration. The estimated demand for staff is compared to the supply of staff to identify and address any gaps.

Better utilization of lanes: 

Optimized Lane Plans – indicating the number of lanes to open in 5-minute increments, with the ability to make changes and interact directly with the plan.

 

With integrations to automated passenger tracking, Better Security will automatically update the recommended lane opening plan to reflect changes. In the same manner, a live integration with the flight schedules updates in case of any delays or cancellations, thereby triggering a new recommended plan that the security supervisor can utilize.
