software is essentially a data
warehouse that collects data Airframe, Engine Maximise Efficiency
from various airline IT systems New Fuels Minimise Weight
including data coming directly
from the aircraft such as FDM/FDR INFRASTRUCTURE ECONOMIC
data. More than 1000 parameters MEASURES
are stored in the database for Air Routes, ATM
each flight. Airlines perform very Airport Procedures Offsets and Trading
many flights per year with their Incentives
many aircraft. Comparing several
years of such data then results in
a huge volume of data of up to
several billion of data elements.
This data is thoroughly checked
by the Aviaso software for quality,
and erroneous data can be
either corrected or excluded
from analyses. Then, powerful
analyses are available to help
airlines discover their true fuel
savings potential. Based on these
analyses, airlines are selecting
which fuel saving initiatives to
implement. Finally, the software
continuously monitors the
initiatives to ensure that the
airlines are really achieving their
fuel savings. l
