The Federal Aviation AdministrationsFAAs Operational Evolution Plan OEP was initiated in 2000 as a 10-year plan to improve the capacity of the National Airspace System NAS.MITRECAASD has supported the FAA in its assessment of the OEP by using a discrete event simulation of the NAS. Regular performance assessments have provided point estimates of both NAS-wide delays and airport delays. However, the use of point estimates has limited the insight decision-makers have about the amount of uncertainty in the performance estimates of the future NAS.
