- Flow forecasting: it allows to estimate in advance how many passengers will pass through a specific area of the airport in a particular time slot, how many bags will need to be moved, how many parking spaces will be occupied, how many auxiliary services will be required, and so on.
- Analysis and dimensioning: it is possible to use ad hoc simulators and data-driven algorithms in order to dimension baggage handling systems, accumulation buffers, resources required for passenger transport, waiting areas, service personnel, etc...
- - Scheduling and dispatching: the objective is to schedule operations and assign the most appropriate resources to avoid inefficiencies and downtime. It is possible to dynamically control the activities of operators (staff at check-in, security checks, assistance to persons with reduced mobility, ramp operations, etc.), and automated systems (stops for preventive maintenance, baggage redirection, etc.) to maximize service levels and responsiveness.
RELY ON DATA-DRIVEN CONSULTING
Important decisions are always linked to high investment costs or the need to quickly choose between different alternatives, without the possibility of easily turning back.
Two factors are essential to make appropriate choices: experience and information. In particular, when sufficient data is available, it is possible to address problems following a quantitative approach, exploiting skills, models, and algorithms specifically developed for decision support.
Automate consultants, thanks to their expertise in simulation, mathematical optimization and forecasting, are able to help customers in their search for the best data-driven solutions.
