Emirate Airlines’ “Network Capacity Optimization” (NCO) is the subject of this fourth installment of the “Real World Apps” series. For reference here are the first three:
NCO was developed to allow the dispatchers at Emirates Airlines to optimize the usage of their plane fleet. In this application the user creates requests for new flights, cancelled flights, delayed flights, upgraded flights, etc…. NCO can then be used to create different scenarios to fulfill the requests. Each scenario is evaluated and associated with its impact on costs.
I had only a small role in this project. I consulted the development team on the integration of FlexGanttFX into NCO. Topics we had to cover were things like lazy loading strategy or editing behaviour.
The following screenshots show the application in action.
