Transportation Management Systems for Airport Ground Handling
Specifics of airport ground vehicle management in Russia lie in the fact that their operation is strictly regulated by the national legislation. In all these cases, we may distinguish between the conditions of the transportation process organization and the requirements of normative legal documents. This stipulates the use of special standards and rules for fuel consumption calculation and a certain document flow. The systems of higher functionality help solve the problems of planning and accounting of the transportation operation, technical maintenance and repair, consumption of spare parts, fuel and tires. A highly important TMS class embraces the software products intended for planning, organizing and accounting the work of motor transportation businesses. This paper considers TMS “Autobase” of our development which facilitates accounting of ramp vehicle operation and maintenance. Depending on the conditions of their transport activity, their architecture may be formed on a modularity basis, increasing the functional features to the required limits and creating complex TMS system. The TMS “Autobase” implements the tasks of keeping records of repairs and reserve vehicles, cost analysis; it presents more than 300 reports, OLAP applications.
