Rule based

RAIDO flexible rule engine is at the core of all airline business processes. The rule engine will drive such processes as: financial analysis, quality control, and operational system alerts. The rule engine will be delivered with standard IATA schedule rules, standard financial key figures, and standard CAA regulations. The rule engine will be however very flexible and intuitive, enabling the user to easily build new rules and tailor existing rules. Newly created rules are tested using existing accurate data, to ensure that they work correctly before applying them to the live environment.

Calculators and rules can be set up for all kinds of data. Here are a few examples

  • Financial analysis
  • Quality control
  • Aircraft
  • Timetable
  • Crew
  • System alerts and notifications
  • Notification for non profitable flights
  • Crew legality check

Automated

Systems alerts and notifications monitored by RAIDO's rule engine can sometimes be overwhelming in a busy operational environment - especially for larger airline. RAIDO can take care of certain tasks for you automatically, giving you more time to concentrate on other jobs. The level of automation is very flexible and you decide how automation is set up to best suit your business and operational needs. Events and tasks can either be completely automated or semi-automated.

How does it work? Here are some examples

A crew member reports in sick; how do you resolve the situation?

Fully automated: (under development)
RAIDO checks for a suitable standby replacement, and chooses the candidate with the least duty hours. RAIDO sends a notification to the standby crew member, either by SMS or email, and waits for confirmation. When confirmation is received, RAIDO informs the user.

Semi automated:
RAIDO checks for suitable standby replacements and presents the user with a list of candidates. The user chooses which crew member will be assigned to the duty. The rest of the procedure is automated as described above.

Event Flow Manager (under development)

RAIDO also features a dynamic and rule based "Event Flow Manager", which is completely user definable and is set up to suit your requirements. You can set up activities flow, using the RAIDO rule engine, and link it to a specific event.

Here is an example of an event flow task which is automatically triggered when the rule you have defined is applied. Note: RAIDO will also keep track of acknowledgments and confirmations:

Scenario: A delay of more than 3 hours at a particular airport will result in event flow:

  • Send a message to order meal vouchers - Monitor the booking confirmation
  • Delay the ATC FPL.
  • Send a new ATC slot request - Monitor the slot confirmation
  • Email/SMS notification to crew - Monitor the acknowledgement
  • Notify handling agent, catering, re-fuelers - Monitor the slot confirmation
  • Notify hotel of later check-in time - Monitor the confirmation
  • Re-book ground transport Monitor the confirmation
  • Produce a report and send it to top management
  • Auto publish/send reports at designated dates/times.

Integrated

RAIDO uses the latest Microsoft technology to provide a "one window" communication system for data access.

Integration interfaces with other systems, such as: revenue management/booking, maintenance, flight planning, financial systems, ensuring secure real-time data flow -supporting encrypted data when required.

Integration is compatible with various platforms and formats such as: MS SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, Excel, flat files etc. Templates for data transfer are easily created to enable RAIDO to communicate in a consistent and reliable way with other systems.

Optimization

Traditionally, optimization has been a fragmented process where resources such as: schedule, fleet, crew pairing and crew assignment have been considered separately. Of course these processes are inter-related and they have an operational and financial impact on each other, so why not consider them as a complete business process?

RAIDO presents a new and flexible approach to create and maintain optimized processes as a complete picture, which will be customized to suit your business needs. By combining various operational resources into one process, including even fatigue management, you will get a more rationalized, integrated and cost effective solution. Of course you still have the option to optimize in the traditional way as well.

RAIDO will be built on new technology by people with vast experience in optimization. Aviolinx work in cooperation with people at: Royal Institute of Technology (Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan, KTH) in Stockholm, University College of Berkeley in California, Austrian Airlines and Scandinavian Airlines System.
