An Enumerative Constraint Planning Framework for Airline Engineering Manpower Cost Optimization
MetadataShow full item record
This paper discusses the formulation of a general enumerative constraint planning model relevant to different aspects of airline engineering workforce planning dimensions observed in the contemporary flight line operations. However, it is to be understood this is a general theoretical framework that needs to be custom-tailored to suit the diversified operational scenarios discussed therein. Initially, evidential coherence of pre studied literature was comprehensively analyzed in ascertaining, understanding of predefined methodologies, and impediments of which. Whereupon the primary data elements are classified enlightened by said findings, and subsequently, relationships and the constraints related to data elements are discussed. It is followed by a discussion of the expected objectives and an employee-centered general model with the objective of direct or indirect cost optimization is formulated. Commuting on the contrived model, the amalgamation of a wide range of constraints has superseded the circumspection requirements of predefined models identified through literature. The general model signifies the complete aviation workforce planning problems from mediocre to prodigious cases.
