In the panel, Gabriel and his colleagues discussed how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can vastly improve ground handling operations. By leveraging smart algorithms, downtime can be reduced significantly, with optimized reallocation of staff from lower to high skill level tasks.
AI-DRIVEN SOFTWARE TAKES INTO ACCOUNT ALL RELEVANT WORKFORCE PLANNING PARAMETERS
Applying AI, flexible optimization software considers key planning parameters including applicable laws, collective bargaining agreements, company contracts and service level agreements, working time models, shift requirements for various operational areas, and employee qualifications. Weighing these criteria, the AI-based solution develops an optimized workforce plan that ultimately enhances workforce allocation and improves overall productivity, facilitates the optimized use of staff on higher level tasks, and enhances the staff experience.
In their presentation, Roque and team members also discussed the definition of Machine Learning and AI and highlighted their differences as well as the importance of making data-driven predictions to improve operational efficiency. Roque added, “I also delved into real-world examples of AI deployments in Ground Support Equipment. We discussed the potential of AI in optimizing ground handling operations, using staff rostering as a reference. Ultimately, I emphasized the importance of collaboration between humans and machines in leveraging AI for operational excellence. I’m happy our panel turned into a lively discussion with a lot of questions and audience participation.”
