MasterMAN iRoom: Intelligent Roster Optimization

23. Feb. 2018

We are excited to introduce MasterMAN™ iRoom, a brand new tool for the deployment planning of Air Traffic Controllers. The tool is fully configurable and tailored to the needs of small to medium sized airports by using flight plan and real-time data for the roster optimization.

Key features of MasterMAN™ iRoom

  • Intuitive handling via touchscreen
  • Transparent overview of traffic at the airport and the deployment of ATCOs
  • Color-coded user interface for a better comprehensibility
  • Flexible staff deployment (Optimization according to different criteria possible)

How it works

In the first step, you enter information about your staff (vacation days, license types, etc.) In the second step, iRoom loads and analyses flight plan and real-time data provided by using the services. Finally, the roster is calculated based on the traffic at the airport and availability of the ATCOs. The result is an optimized roster, displayed in a transparent, color-coded User Interface.

What used to be complicated and time-consuming paperwork becomes an automated, intuitive process. With MasterMAN™ iRoom you can not only reduce your labour costs but you simplify your deployment planning and you can prevent mental overload and underload of your ATCOs by allocating your staff intelligently.
