Tag Archives: CDM milestones
At aeriaA we are trying to address the A-CDM concept from several points of view, interviews at Meet the Expert’s Airtalks interviews (see the Airtalk with the authors of the TITAN Project book, and with Juergen Weder – Neuropie’s CEO), with the free book download of books (www.aeriaa.com/books/titan-going-beyond-a-cdm/), or assisting to interesting events as the Data Science Workshop, etc. So, last week I had the opportunity of reading the first article of Kris de Bolle’s (thanks Kris) new series about A-CDM at the New Airport Insider website. This is the link to the article.
Before processing thousands of events, scenarios, etc. for feeding the Dashboard, I would like to show the a dimension that put in context almost every event. The time dimension. Delays are the “Oh, no, a delay again, what was the captain reason this time?” The late arrival of the plane, air regulation over the airport…I heard once that the guilty factor was the “shamefulness of being part of an airline because the ramp handling staff were late….some other details were given by the captain and it was a gesture of honesty”. We, the passengers only concern about only time milestone, the scheduled departure time of our flight, and pray for not have a big delay, but there are always 10, 15 minutes of courtesy. In this post, you will see dozens of time milestones, that impact over all the punctuality process of the flight operation and consequently will be marked in the Dashboard we are defining in this blog (this is the part V of this series).
