Application Areas for Aircraft Operators
The application areas at Airlines and Aircraft Operators range from operational efficiency, taxi processes and safety aspects. All of the following application areas are covered by the analytics capabilities of the Performance Cockpit. The use cases described below provide an overview on how the Performance Cockpit can be used as a stand alone web-based analytics software. Take a look at your area of interest and request your personal demo account.
During taxi processes and especially during peak times the airside gets congested by queues and waiting times before takeoff and after landing. Getting a clear picture on how the congestions develop over time is important to measure improvements and take actions to reduce the overall emissions at the airport.
Continuous Descent Operations
Continuous descent approaches are important measurements for airports to reduce noise over housing areas and for airlines to reduce fuel consumption. There is tremendous difference among airlines in terms of the CDA share and therefore room for improvement to lower emissions
It is often hard to monitor and analyse de-icing processes. In Analytics it is possible to keep track of some important key figures such the average duration of de-icing processes or detailed information on how long de-icings had taken at particular pads. In addition it is possible to check different aircraft types and operators on a daily basis. Furthermore there is no manual input required, which eliminates errors in the manual input process, while data quality remains very high. All data and KPIs can be downloaded or used via APIs for further processing.
Getting a clear picture on the duration of pushback times and stops for each gate position at the airport provides valuable information for internal improvement and better OTP. The data can be directly used for A-CDM or applications to enhance the departure process.
As an Airport it is important to be aware of any safety-critical events during landing of all flight movements. Tailwind affect the required take-off and landing field lengths, especially on contaminated runways, which may lead to runway overruns, unstable approaches, hard landings or go-arounds. By measuring the tailwind landings, safety risks can be monitored and identified with the help of KPI dashboards.
This module shows the influence of gate positions, routings and vacation exits on the overall taxi times of aircraft. By having this insight available, airlines are able to evaluate potential measures to reduce the overall taxi times by selecting the most economical gate positions and most optimal vacation exits.
This solution shows turnaround times at stand and gate positions of an airport. It can be used to identify, which gate position is highly utilised and leads to waiting time in taxi processes. In addition there is the option to benchmark and compare different locations based on turnaround duration.
