To effectively control complex flight operations and to coordinate activities with other airports, you need an airport management system that simplifies decision-making and delivers complete visibility. And that’s exactly what the T-Systems modular solution TAMS (Total Airport Management System) delivers to 50 airports around the world.
The modules range from terminal simulation to flight scheduling, slot allocation, and statistical reporting and analysis. The core component is the Airport Operational Database (AODB). This automatically captures all relevant information from multiple internal and external systems, and makes it available to the airport operator as well as its staff and customers.
Thanks to an integrated Resource Management System (RMS), you can effectively plan the deployment of resources such as baggage-handling equipment and ticket counters. Furthermore, the Flight Information Display System (FIDS) provides passengers with clear, easy-to-understand guidance in real time. Airport operators can also use the digital displays to advertise in the public areas of their terminals.
Making decisions together
The CDM (Collaborative Decision Making) solution is a further way of synchronizing airport processes across external and internal stakeholders. It fully integrates all organizations – from the airport operator to the airlines and air-traffic controllers, to the ground-handling specialists, catering and cleaning companies, to police, and customs, etc. Data from all sources is consolidated in the AODB, and protected from unauthorized access by encryption. Information is provided in real time, allowing prompt and coordinated responses. In addition, the solution generates statistics, for instance, on the number of delays, or hourly takeoffs and landings. By comparing target figures with actual outcomes, and using a single database to avoid conflicts, airport processes can be continually improved, and resources efficiently deployed.
