Staff planning software / program for aviation (airport and security staff) — automatic shift schedule
More About Staff Planning for Aviation
AI-powered technologies like plano WFM can significantly simplify and optimize staff planning for the aviation industry (airport and security personnel). To ensure optimal assignment of airport staff, a wide variety of factors are taken into account and automatically included in the scheduling process. Based on information such as work volume, number of passengers, or past flight schedules, the required number of employees needed on the ground and in the air can be calculated accurately.
Unforeseen fluctuations or employee absences? Even after shift schedules have been distributed, they remain flexible and can be readjusted at any time.
In the aviation branch, fair staff planning is crucial for ensuring safety, efficiency, and customer satisfaction at airports. The integration of AI (artificial intelligence) in shift scheduling can help meet the complex demands of the industry. plano, for example, uses AI-based models to predict security and airport staffing needs based on expected flight operations, passenger volume, and other factors. This helps reduce understaffing and overtime. At the same time, other factors, such as employee qualifications and personal working hour preferences, are also included in shift scheduling. All factors flow into the AI-supported planning and are automatically taken into account as best as possible when creating schedules. The result is a schedule that covers both operational requirements and employee preferences as best as possible. With air traffic especially, individual qualifications and staff skills play an essential role.
Certain tasks require appropriately trained and educated personnel to comply with the requirements of safety-critical areas. Our plano WFM provides an overview of employee qualifications at all times and alerts you in due time before they expire. This way, you avoid dangerous and expensive losses of qualifications and can be ensured the right personnel are always available and assigned to specific tasks. This is crucial to efficient and safe airport operation.
With our employee self-service tools, your employees not only receive their shift schedules digitally, but they can also participate in the process. For example, they can conveniently send vacation requests or shift preferences from anywhere. The system will automatically check for compliance based on stored criteria, such as working hour accounts, fairness, and other company-specific parameters.
