Long term Crew Management consists of pairing planning and crew planning. Pairings can either be imported from other systems, created manually in RAIDO or by using the RAIDO Pairing Optimizer. The Pairing Optimizer has a GUI for defining all parameters as well as selecting/ignoring certain rules that should be used in the pairing optimizer run. Parameters can be saved into templates, making the setup fast for next time the user runs the optimizer.
Crew Schedules/Rosters can be built manually by the user either using legs or pairings, or automatically by using the Auto Rostering function in RAIDO. The Auto Rostering tool can build crew rosters based on pairings by using multiple user-defined fairness parameters, ensuring a fair roster in combination with multiple patterns.
RAIDO and its rules engine have a flexible Crew Training Document Management system where a user can define different types of crew documents, heads-up times as well as grace-periods and prolong times. Crew Documents can be either manually updated or semi-automatic using the HR Wizard that scans the system for training activities in crew schedules which are set to update and prolong one or several Crew Expiry Documents.
The Training Concept in RAIDO allows the user to manage training facilities, training sessions, training patterns as well as a Training Wizard which can be used to match students and instructors with training sessions.
Daily Crew Operations
The Crew Gantt in RAIDO provides the user with an intuitive overview of the crew members and their duties. As RAIDO is a one-database solution with a common rule engine, any update for a flight leg will instantly update assigned crew members and trigger automatic legality calculations, which gives the user a real-time monitoring with the ability to be pro-active for future issues.
