Flight Schedule Analyzer
Web-based analysis tool for assessing TMI performance
Flight Schedule Analyzer (FSA) is a web-based analysis tool that assesses the performance of Traffic Management Initiatives (TMI). The dynamically generated reports in FSA allow the Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) community to monitor programs as they are executing. Performance reports show whether the Ground Delay Program (GDP) is delivering the requested rate and indicates why the desired rate is not being achieved. Compliance reports allow FAA personnel to monitor compliance with assigned control times and additional reports help identify data quality problems that may negatively impact program performance. Various drill-down features allow the user to interactively query the underlying database for additional flight information.
FSA allows the CDM community to eliminate unnecessary delays, by identifying and eliminating the causes of poor traffic initiative program performance. The key beneficiaries are:
- Airlines: FSA allows airlines to monitor flight performance during traffic initiatives in real-time. Summary reports, detailed flight information and full flight histories allow customers to identify and isolate issues causing discrepancies between TMI intention and execution, then take action to correct or prevent similar actions in the future.
- FAA: FAA personnel monitor traffic initiatives in real-time to spot issues and correct them, to ensure the TMI is executing as intended. Also, the FAA uses FSA reports to determine if the National Airspace System (NAS)/TMI performance is what is expected or intended and if not, isolate problems and take corrective action for future initiatives.
- Public: With improved efficiency and predictability with the implementation of traffic initiatives, the flying public experiences fewer delays.
