Fully Integrated Resource Planning Solution
Mach-SmartPredict® provides acomprehensive set of tools
to manage the activities associated with the resource
planning of Airport facilities. The overview page provides
resource planners with tools for staff and equipment
allocation, flight schedule maintenance, flight profiling,
capacity utilisation monitoring and reporting.
Mach-SmartPredict® provides a simple
tool for the creation and maintenance of
the operating flight schedule and
provides interfaces to live flight
information sources to ensure that the
current operational schedule accurately
reflects the real operating situation.
Mach-SmartPredict® provides tools for the modelling of
expected passenger flows, baggage flows and outbound
security loads based on the operational flight schedule,
operating aircraft and historical carrier load factors. It is able
to model the passenger profile over the active operational
time of each flight taking into account the passenger mix
and characteristics based on the leveraging of real
accurate passenger data per flight or carrier.
Passenger Flow Forecast
Mach-SmartPredict® utilises the passenger profiles to forecast outbound security loads, check-in desk
loadings and make-up capacity. The historical data gathered by SmartPredict is leveraged into the
forecast algorithms so that it can learn from previous experience and provide more accurate forecasts
of future resource demands. Simple tools allow exceptional situations such as public holidays, school
holiday patterns etc. to be taken into account when generating current forecasts.
The new Mach-SmartPredict® module addresses the security requirements and problems of the transport industry
globally and satisfies these objectives with a totally integrated system that offers fast, efficient, secure and accurate
monitoring of Airport passenger flows.
With the passenger experience being of paramount importance, it has been recognised that the efficiency of an
Airport is significantly enhanced when presented with the controlled, secure and managed environment that the
Mach-SmartPredict® solution guarantees.
Changing threats and passenger processing systems mean that the challenges we face today will be greater
tomorrow – Mach-SmartPredict® is a scalable modular solution which is designed to enable an Airport to maximise
the efficient use of its valuable resources while providing class leading passenger service.
Mach-SmartPredict® displays in real time the actual passenger flows and associated equipment
capacity demand against the predicted demand generated by the forecast engine. Simple colours are
used to provide at a glance indication of passenger short flows or unexpected demand peaks. The real
passenger flow is fed back into the prediction engine to modify the prediction and generate warnings of
pending capacity shortfall.
Mach-SmartPredict® takes the predicted and actual demand
flows and compares them to the available processing
capacity. Simple colours are used to provide at a glance
indication of capacity over and under utilisation to allow
operations managers to fine tune their resource allocation to
real passenger flows. Capacity utilisation can be further
leveraged into the Mach-SmartRoster® system to facilitate
efficient staff planning.
Mach-SmartPredict® provides a comprehensive set of tools to
facilitate the effective planning of equipment resources. The
results of the forecast engine and real time feedback of the
actual passenger flows are leveraged into the equipment
planning tools to improve the efficiency of the airport
operation. Tools are provided for check in, out bound security
and flight make up planning and simple colours are used to
indicate resource over utilisation while drag and drop tools
provide an intuitive user interface experience.
Standard shift, daily, weekly and monthly reports are available at all times. Using the reporting tools it is
possible to produce granulated reports down to individual equipment device level over a selected
reporting period. Reporting subjects and time periods are selected via a simple intuitive GUI and can
be generated on screen or as either paper or PDF forms.
