In this section an example is given of an imaginary situation, elements of which may apply to your organization. The example case provides an integrated overview of the services detailed in the other sections of the FerWay Services description. First the challenge being faced is introduced followed by an overview of services applied to find solutions.
It cannot be emphasized enough that through every step, FerWay will work with your organization experts to the extent desired. Solutions are derived in a collaborative working method. If deemed necessary, FerWay may team up with partners if the challenge so requires. This may for example involve systems/software development, procedure or safety experts.
For a more in depth presentation of specific services, please refer to the other Services sections.
We have a high-density airport, where a major carrier is operating its hub-operation along with many other airlines. During traffic peaks, arrival rates are in the order of 70 to 80 aircraft an hour, with a varying mix in aircraft types. There is no robust traffic metering mechanism in place. There is also limited coordination between the ATC units involved, ranging from TWR to APP, ACCs and UACs.
This situation leads to a number of related problems:
Activities to understand the challenge
To address these challenges, a number of activities are performed:
Work to meet the challenge
The multidisciplinary information obtained in the previous activities now need to be analyzed integrally to define concrete implementation steps to achieve improvements. These entail amongst others:
FerWay will work with partners to perform some of these tasks like ATM Systems development and ATC procedure definition. All tasks are performed in very close co-operation with engineering, procedure development and operational staff.
