Development and Simulation of a new Scheme for the Aircraft Cleaning Service

Artikel

During the last decade with the increase of competition, airlines have set up schemes to lower costs. Their present profit margin has narrowed to the point of not being able to compete with companies whose business model is similar to the low-cost ones forcing them to explore novel ways of managing the available resources in order to keep competitive.

One of the costs is the cleaning service generated by contracting this service and the delays that this operation can cause. The aim of this paper is to propose a new management system for scheduling the on board cleaning service, that lowers current costs, using tools such as modelling with coloured petri nets and simulation.
