SIMCORE: Serious Games For Airport Operations Simulation

Serious Games modeling numerous airport operations


Via: Airport Technology - SIMCORE - Airport Operations Simulation

SIMCORE's main aim is to provide logistical decision support to companies in the airport sector through the provision of operations simulation, scheduling, optimisation and planning software.

The majority of their references are in the following application areas: baggage handling, passenger flow, cargo handling and terminal operations.


Typical simulation results of air and landside operations will include definition and validation of stand and gate allocation strategies and evaluation of apron movement


Operational decision support software evaluates check-in counter allocation to improve customer service levels and minimise the number of counters needed


The 3D passenger flow animations mean that project managers can actually view potential problems rather than speculating from raw data on results sheets
