CAST Terminal provides scalable and realistic models of airport terminals and other passenger handling facilities. It enables decision support for planning, design, capacity analysis and optimization of terminal infrastructure and operational processes.
CAST Terminal is used to determine facility requirements and to validate new terminal layouts and processes in order to achieve maximum planning reliability at the earliest stage. Additionally, CAST Terminal provides great potentials to optimize the existing terminal facilities and processes within various operational scenarios.
The user-friendly interface allows fast and straightforward modelling of complex structures as they appear in real world airport terminals.
Leading to most reliable results, numerous airport-specific parameters concerning facilities and passengers can be implemented. Besides the generation of relevant statistical data, the 3D visualization is an essential feature to convince decision makers.
CAST Terminal runs on standard PC or Laptop with Microsoft Windows. Flexible license models according to individual requirements.
CAST has been developed by users for users with partners like BAA, Frankfurt Airport, Zurich Airport, Eurocontrol and Airbus.
Worldwide users include airport owners, airport operators, airlines, ground handling companies, ANS provider, logistic companies, authorities, universities and other organisations, as well as engineering, planning and consulting companies.
To ensure a quick start and immidiate success ARC offers consulting services, training as well as support for the initial set-up of a model.
As an further option the Continuous Modelling Service (CMS) does not only include the set-up of a 3D-CAST model of the airport but also a predefined simulation service on a regular base in order to check defined airport parts or to test next season’s schedule. For ARC and its worldwide clients a close and long term cooperation is one of the most important key factors to ensure the best possible outcomes and ensure the sustainable use of the CAST technology.
Subsequent to the training experienced CAST experts take care of the user support. The ARC helpdesk is there to answer technical questions regarding the use of CAST for specific tasks, technical problems or special features of CAST. Further, individual modelling and project support is available as an option.
Being a CAST User means becoming a member of the CAST User Community. Every year, CAST users from various international airports, airlines and consulting companies come together to network with other experts, share experiences, talk about projects, gain insights into the latest developments and discuss CAST’s vision for the future.
