Deplaning naturally occurs row by row down the length of an aircraft. Using simulation and optimization, we design deplaning strategies (e.g., deplane by group and/or column) that significantly reduce the overall unstructured deplaning time. The evaluations derived from a combination of optimization and simulation were tested across several equipment types using data gathered through field observations for calibration.
