Speed Up Effects in Security Procedure on Delhi Metro Rail : Implications for Queuing Theory and Rail Security
22 March 2013
It is the thesis of this paper that in the field of railway security planning security operations on assumptions of classic queuing theory should take into account behavior of security personnel acting as servers. Due to a number of social, human, and operational factors servers do not maintain a constant rate of throughput, independent of arrival rate of passengers. This has implications both for queuing theory, and security of railways against threat of explosives. The project was made possible through working in collaboration with security authorities at Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) in New Delhi, India. Specifications of security procedures at metro rail networks were also discussed with Veolia RATP, which is engaged in operating Mumbai’s Metro Rail (Line 1) which starts operations in 2013.
