CrewSim lets you cre­ate and test mul­ti­ple crew­ing sce­nar­ios. Being a sand­box-tool par­al­lel to the pro­duc­tion envi­ron­ment, it iden­ti­fies the most effi­cient and effec­tive crew­ing solu­tion.

By import­ing your exist­ing crew data from Crew­Log­ic, and com­bin­ing it with your flight sched­ule from either Sched­ule­Plan­ner or Sched­uleS­im, CrewSim allows you to test mul­ti­ple crew pair­ings, estab­lish­ments and ros­ters that you can be sure are air­line and avi­a­tion author­i­ty crew rules-com­pli­ant.

CrewSim’s opti­mis­ers can, of course, be fine-tuned by APM’s con­sul­tan­cy ser­vice to meet your spe­cif­ic airline’s require­ments.

Its suite of analy­sis and report­ing tools allows you to dis­play sev­er­al sce­nar­ios on the same screen in just a few clicks. This enables easy eval­u­a­tion of your options so you can decide on a pre­ferred crew­ing sce­nario.

Before you export the sce­nario back to pro­duc­tion, CrewSim gives a visu­al graph­i­cal dis­play of all dif­fer­ences between your pro­duc­tion pair­ings and crew ros­ter, and those in your sce­nario, so you can decide which to main­tain in pro­duc­tion in the export process. You can then export this to the pro­duc­tion envi­ron­ment of Crew­Log­ic to form the foun­da­tion of your season’s crew man­age­ment or to iden­ti­fy your long-term estab­lish­ment plan­ning.


CrewSim administration

  • import complete or partial schedules from ScheduleSim or a live production schedule from SchedulePlanner
  • build in and apply airline and aviation authority crew rules and parameters
  • easy interpretation of scenarios through a range of reporting tools make roster comparison more intuitive and efficient
  • export the desired scenario back into CrewLogic

Integrated crew route pairings optimiser

  • automatically generate crew rule-compliant crew pairings to cover flights
  • parameterisation of rules to be ignored by the optimiser such as extended duty pairings, and augmented crew pairings
  • generation of pairings by crew roles
  • define multiple crew base airports and stopover airports
  • ability to limit pairings by crew base
  • automated creation of hotac using a hotac dictionary
  • automated generation of pre and post flight positioning (Deadheading) using a generic dictionary
  • generate standby pairings for a selected period with a user-defined crew complement

Integrated crew roster optimiser

  • two-phase rostering optimiser to legally assign all crew routes — including standby pairings — and optimise balancing criteria such as block, duty, standby, and good or bad destinations
  • simulate pairings with compositions creating rosters to calculate the projected crew establishment
  • calculate the minimum number of crew required, accounting for factors including training, standby, leave and sickness
  • create virtual crews for longterm establishment planning
  • evaluate scenarios of fair or unfair crew duty allocations including duty, block time, routes and training
  • identify pairings unable to be assigned to any crew and crews unable to be used for duties
  • define ground activities to be considered as crew availability
  • automatically generate additional virtual crews and assign pairing duties that could not be assigned to any crew
  • take into account crew complements on pairings as well as crew role compatibility
  • balance by total crew or scaled by crew availabilities
  • define crews with target block times by month
  • dynamic balancing phase enables creation of multiple primary objective solutions, assignment of selected duties to some crews and balance for others, with dynamic changes to secondary objectives while maintaining primary objectives
  • limit event allocation by flight number, by destination and by ground activity
  • graphical overview of a roster (in read-only mode) to evaluate solutions prior to validation
