Crew Optimization modules of our platform leverage advanced AI/ML components and operations research models to streamline crew planning. The solutions are supported by scenario management capabilities that allow crew schedulers to develop alternative solutions using different sets of configurable parameters.
Depending on customer needs, they can select from a range of optimization modules:
Evaluate and respond to growing crew capacity requirements by optimizing onboarding, training, and certification planning
Optimize the alignment of crew and fleet to maximize utility, minimize block times, and increase schedule reliability
Optimize crew rosters and reduce costs by evaluating thousands of potential scenarios, including the application of crew teaming concepts
Digitally manage crew roster approval, self-scheduling, PBS preferential bidding, and trip trading
The value of our optimization solutions is proven via operator benchmarks, whether comparing impact of a CAE solution, other solutions or even through use of manual crew planning / roster recovery processes. Our monthly crew planning optimizer has the potential to reduce operational costs up to 10% compared to manual processes.
Recognizing that the cost of crew resourcing is among the top three costs for an operator, it is vital to have a tool that can accurately project optimal crew resources to keep you flying and crew cost manageable.
The Crew Resource Management solution-as-a-service is powered by Travel AI which uses the cutting-edge technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Neural Network Activity, and Active Learning. The technology drives the crew resource planning process and provides advanced demand forecast, supply and demand analysis, and related projections. The solution analyzes the historical data on crew absences, operational requirements, roster deviation, and forecasts for future crew resources requirements with consideration to the following factors:

Training and Scheduling
Our Crew Management System provides long-term training management and scheduling capabilities. Providing operators optimization of training assignments while considering the number of trainees, trainers, and logistics available. Operators can also appreciate a modular capability to manage training footprint via the training curriculum functionality. Users have the option to create training plans for long and short terms manually or via the optimizers. The training optimizer creates a plan for all training requirements such as ground training, flight recencies, simulators, and external trainings. Whether making changes to a training planning, assigning training automatically, or providing detailed reports to enable timely bookings for travel, training, hotel and more, the optimizer is flexible and works for you.
