Abstract : Cargo flow through an air cargo terminal is modeled as an activity network by utilizing: deterministic and probabilistic decision-making elements as nodes, activities or branches which relate the nodes and whose characteristics determine the magnitude and delay of commodity flow, and a set of statistical monitors to count events and to perform statistical evaluations at strategic points of the network.
