Airport baggage handling systems are a critical infrastructure component within major airports, and essential to ensure smooth luggage transfer while preventing dangerous material being loaded onto aircraft. This paper proposes a standard set of measures to assess the expected performance of a baggage handling system through discrete event simulation. These evaluation methods also have application in the study of general network systems. Results from the application of these methods reveal operational characteristics of the studied BHS, in terms of metrics such as peak throughput, in-system time and system recovery time.
