Abstract : This Appendix describes the Program Logic of the Airport Landside Simulation Model (ALSIM) AUXILIARY and MAIN Programs. Both programs are written in GPSS-V. The AUXILIARY program is operated prior to the MAIN Program to create GPSS transactions representing Enplaning Passenger groups from the input flight schedule. The transactions are written on a JOBTAPE file for subsequent use by the MAIN program. The MAIN Program creates greeter and deplaning passenger transactions and enacts the movements of all passengers and visitors through the landside.
