1 Optimizing Airline Operations with NetAdvisor Contact: Ashish Tripathy Website: Optimal Network Systems 1

2 What is NetAdvisor ? An integrated planning system with a suite of models that can be customized to plan, optimize and simulate costs and revenue for an airline’s network operations Key Functionalities of NetAdvisor:  Generate optimized schedules and maintenance plans for airline fleet  Build optimized schedules, rosters, vacation and training plans for crews  Perform integrated what-if analysis on strategic plans to expand network, add capacity and/or change business rules  Standardize the planning process to build consistent and robust schedules from one month to the next  Perform market share analysis and suggest profitable itineraries based upon industry demand data  Maximize revenue generated from available resources  Minimize resource costs, idle time and the amount of resources  Satisfy government imposed crew work-life regulations 2 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

3 System Configuration: Configure NetAdvisor to set up specific fleet types, airports, passenger/cargo demand types and planning horizon. Store, edit and retrieve data from a database 3 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

4 Demand and Revenue Management: View, edit and group demand data, origin-destination pairs, cargo tons, passenger demand, cargo rates, passenger ticket rates and different demand categories such as economy and business class. 4 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

5 Airport Database: Add and edit airport data such as geographical co-ordinates, time zones, runway lengths and widths from NetAdvisor database. 5 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

6 Slot Manager: Use the slot manager to manage, input and edit arrival and departure slots for specific airports. Slots can have a weekly frequency to allow weekend exceptions, as well as a date range during which they apply Slot Manager: Use the slot manager to manage, input and edit arrival and departure slots for specific airports.

7 Block Times: Add and edit block time data, including break-up into taxi-out, flight and taxi-in times. Input variable block time for different time periods of the year and by time-of-day. 7 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

8 Aircraft Tail Management: Add and edit individual aircraft tail number data. View the aircraft schedule itinerary generated by optimizer or manually by user 8 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

9 9 Fleet Type: Add many different fleet types to NetAdvisor database. Maintain and edit the data as needed. Add new fleets as your fleet composition changes

10 Leg Daily View : Manage and view leg details in a fully dated view. View and edit daily tail number and crew assignments for each leg. Simulate manual assignments through the NetAdvisor’s financial module and optimizer to asses network impact. 10 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

11 Leg Frequency View: Manage legs to maintain weekly consistency and exceptions 11 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

12 Leg Editor: Edit existing leg details and manage aircraft tail and crew assignments on legs. Change leg start and end times and simulate impact on operations and revenue through the integrated optimizer 12 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

13 Leg (New): Create new legs to simulate future changes in schedules. Enter some parameters of the leg and let the optimizer decide the most optimal values for other parameters Leg (New): Create new legs to simulate future changes in schedules. Enter some parameters of the leg and let the optimizer decide the most optimal values for other parameters. 13 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

14 Minimum Turn Times: Customize fleet-specific turn times at airports to improve fleet utilization and on-time performance 14 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

15 Crew Members: Maintain a current database of crew members with details about their qualification, training and seniority. View, sort and edit data as required. 15 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

16 Crew Bases: Maintain a current database of crew bases with detailed count of resident crews and company-preferred duty start times. Enter potential crew bases and let the optimizer pick the best locations and the crew counts at each optimal base 16 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

17 Crew Rules: View all regulatory rules for domestic and international duties and standby crews. Parameterize the rules and use the crew optimizer to perform what-if impact analysis for any changes in parameter values within specified constraints 17 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

18 Aircraft Maintenance Rules: Customize aircraft maintenance rules to ensure safe operations while using schedule optimization to efficiently utilize maintenance resources and reduce resource downtime 18 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

19 Crew Training Rules: Enter Crew Training Rules to ensure timely renewal of license. Satisfy new hire experience requirements while simultaneously optimizing operating schedules. Parameterize rules to let optimizer find best parameters if flexibility exists. 19 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

20 Crew Availability Schedule: Create optimal crew availability patterns for profit maximization while satisfying regulations. Schedule vacation and training simultaneously 20 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

21 Crew Availability Schedule: Create optimal crew availability patterns for profit maximization while satisfying regulations. Schedule vacation and training simultaneously 21 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

22 Crew Availability/Duty Schedule Editor: Use flexible editing capabilities to edit crew availability and absences along with duty schedules. Editing can be used to change optimizer generated solutions or to create alternatives for simulation and what-if analysis. 22 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

23 Crew Availability Schedule (New Duty): Create new duty structures based upon crew preferences or operational requirements. Use the optimizer to fill in parameters that best fit the network and lead to optimal costs for the entire network. 23 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

24 Schedule Graphics: Use integrated graphical views that make it easy to view large schedules in one glimpse, and resolve resource conflicts in time and constraint space. The graphics views are integrated with other editing, what-if analysis and financial modules. 24 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

25 Graphics (Zoom): Schedule graphics views have zoom-in and zoom-out capabilities so that the planner can view multi-day and intra-day views on the same page. The planner can also view multiple-resource schedules, such as aircraft and crew, simultaneously. 25 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

26 Crew Calendar: The crew calendar view integrates a crew’s roster and detailed duty schedules into one summary view. This is useful to get a bird’s eye view of a crew member’s week and spot days on which he/she could be used for daily schedule changes. 26 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

27 Crew Duty View by Legs: View all legs flown in a crew’s duty with the ability to collapse the duties of those crews that are not of interest while keeping open the duties of select crews. 27 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

28 Aircraft and Unassigned Leg View: This feature shows the aircraft/crew schedules along with any unassigned legs in one integrated timeline. Users can drag and drop unassigned legs onto aircraft and crew schedules during irregular operations to repair a schedule. User can also assess impact of a schedule change on financials and rules. 28 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite

29 Aircraft and Unassigned Leg View (zoomed): Consistent with other graphics features, the aircraft and unassigned leg view can be zoomed-in or zoomed-out, so as to view intra-day and multi-day schedules, all in one view. 29 Optimal Network Systems - NetAdvisor Suite
