Resource management is critical to the success of a border control strategy. Resource allocation and border patrol route and scheduling are both important to the efficient and effective border control operations. This thesis will focus on the development of a resource management and decision making interactive system and related algorithms in order to maximize the capture rate and minimize the resource usage. System development life cycle and other appropriate design tools, such as context diagram, use case model diagram, event diagram and etc. will be used to plan, design, and construct the system. The decision making subsystem will connect to GIS, MATLAB, and Arena to enable data communication and decision making algorithm implementation.
