Press release date: January 29, 2014

'S-HERTOGENBOSCH, The Netherlands — Quintiq, a global leader in supply chain planning and optimization (SCP&O), announced today that the Swiss air navigation service provider (ANSP) skyguide http://www.skyguide.ch will be using its workforce planning system( http://www.quintiq.com/solutions/workforce-planning.html ) to schedule air traffic control officers (ATCOs) and air navigation service employees (ANSE). Quintiq's platform, called BIOMAN (Business-Integrated Optimization of Manpower) by skyguide, is configured for the needs of ANSPs to help cost-effectively manage airspace and avoid service-level related financial sanctions from regulatory bodies.

skyguide has autonomy over Switzerland's airspace, controlling commercial and military traffic. One complex challenge facing ANSPs is ATCOs with the right skill level. Quintiq's platform will assess the resources skyguide has at its disposal and roster staff accordingly. It will also help skyguide build the necessary plans for staff recruitment and training, and allocate ATCOs the right number of hours as agreed in their collective labor agreements while taking into account fatigue management( http://www.quintiq.com/industries/atco-training.html ) safety restrictions.

"We are experiencing decreasing flight traffic and needed to make more efficient use of our assets. The BIOMAN project will provide us with a comprehensive means of planning our resources and staff better," said Klaus Affholderbach, deputy COO of skyguide. "We are delighted Quintiq's platform will be operational at the agreed time and within budget and look forward to seeing the benefits it will bring."

"Completing the BIOMAN project is a significant milestone in our partnership with skyguide," said Arjen Heeres, COO of Quintiq. "skyguide is one of Europe's leading ANSPs and we take pride in having put our industry expertise towards delivering an asset which will optimize its ATCO scheduling and ensure safe, cost-efficient operations."
