Everyone has experienced waiting in lines, whether it is at the airport, the grocery store, or somewhere in-between. By developing queueing simulations based on mathematical models of airport security and customs, we explore a variety of questions related to optimal queue design with respect to efficiency, feasibility, priority, and other prescribed/variable constraints.
