English abstract:
Modelling large socio-technical infrastructure systems tends to be tricky. In the past either one "best fitting" modelling technique was used to model the system or a small part of the system was modelled. This lead to many tradeoffs, where the chosen modelling method got to its limits: by modelling a small part, effects from outside were ignored and modelling the whole system with one method lead to either much detail - where micro-based methods were applied - where it was not required which further lead to high computation times. Using a macro-based approach lead to less detail where it would have been needed. Different parts of the Airport City are modelled with the best fitting modelling technique. These parts are researched for their cou-pling mechanisms to model the whole system and see how effects in one part evolve and pass to the next subsystem. Currently an agent based model of the landside with a modal split of passenger arrival, a Discrete Events terminal model, a multi-method agent-based model with an integrated System Dynamics model rep-resenting the retail area of an airport and an agent based model of the airside are in development and their advantages and disadvantages are being explored.
