APM Technologies are pleased to announce that from February 2018 we will be offering all customers with a SAFE suite license the ability to easily track the fatigue risks to their crew members with the integration of the SAFE Suite of predictive fatigue models with our crewing module; CrewLogic.
What is the Safe Suite?
Developed specifically for the aviation industry including a suite of algorithms and data contributed from major airlines including British Airways, Air New Zealand and Emirates, the FRMSc’s Safe Suite is a platform to identify fatigues scores of both cabin crew (CARE) and flight crew (SAFE), assisting your airline in safe crew management. The model is based on the popular fatigue scale — Samn-Perelli seven-point fatigue scale (SPS).
SAFE – System for aircrew fatigue evaluation
Designed to manage Pilot fatigue and considers trans-meridian travel, cumulative fatigue, on-board napping and other variables, whilst estimating sleep periods.
CARE – Cabin crew alertness and rest evaluation
Designed for cabin crew, CARE is built using the fatigue model from SAFE but with algorithms specifically created to reflect needs of the cabin crew, as the workload is different.
NEW — integration with APM’s CrewLogic
Previously, APM customers with a SAFE license were able to export their rosters created in CrewLogic, into the Safe suite to view fatigue risks. Due to new developments and the connection to the SAFE API, our customers can now clearly view the fatigue levels of their crew within CrewLogic itself.
Clear colour alerts
Colours are used to immediately indicate whether a crew member is at a normal level, reaching fatigue or at a level which may become problematic.
Shown in this example — the green highlights that your crew are ‘alert’ and the dark orange indicates they are between ‘tired’ and ‘fatigued’.
Benefits of the integration to your airline
· Can assist your airline with identifying and managing fatigue risks in accordance with your National Aviation Authority regulations
· Clear and immediate view of the fatigue scores of your crew, within CrewLogic
· Colour coded FRM alerts with the ability to prioritise their order
· Quick, simple and cost effective set up process
· Reliable and regularly synchronised – a standard performance of up to 150,000 duties included in any one API call with higher performances available if required
· View your crew’s fatigue scores in past, present and future schedules, assisting with planning and problem solving
If you have a SAFE licence or are looking to gain one, integrating SAFE with our CrewLogic module will be highly beneficial to your airline for viewing fatigue issues within both past, live and future crew schedules. Many aviation regulators and authorities are experienced users of SAFE and CARE. SAFE is used for incident and accident investigators and was also used in the process to model fatiguing schedules by the EASA task force for the regulations for aircrew fatigue that came into force in February 2016.
