Airport Maintenance

Transavia was looking at methods of optimisation for its Boeing 737-700 and 737-800 airplanes.

Transavia evaluated airline-specific as well as general planning solutions before choosing Quintiq software. The combination of Quintiq’s solution and the business knowledge of Ab Ovo was a winner because it enabled Transavia to use the same information and knowledge for both long-term and short-term planning processes.

In long-term planning, the Quintiq solution optimises the maintenance program using tailor-made clustering techniques, known as the pivot-algorithm. In short-term planning, the solution enables the planner to interact optimally with Commercial Flight Planning, facilitating the handling of constraints and providing direct insight into the consequences of planning decisions.

The system generates management information for both long and short-term planning with respect to interval usage. The software solution also includes capacity planning for platform maintenance based on actual flight schedules.
