Jeppesen Crew Rostering

Airline Modeling and Roster Management

Optimize your crew’s rosters using state-of-the art optimization algorithms tailored for Crew Management.

Rostering of pilots and cabin crew is an act of trading multiple factors to a perfect balance, and where that perfect balance is different from month to month. This, while guaranteeing compliance with authority rules, union/industrial agreements and company directions.

Jeppesen Crew Rostering handles all necessary factors, and is able to trade these factors across multiple bases, ranks and fleets to reach a targeted balance.
Example of factors are awarding crew’s preferences, roster productivity, covering required recurrent training, operational stability aspects like buffers towards legality rules and careful assignment of activities around standby/reserve blocks. Qualification and service needs can be considered, no matter if its language requirements, First/Business/Economy service levels or airport qualifications. Another factor is to take a grip on what type of tasks/activities can be left uncovered in case of temporary crew shortage. 

Jeppesen Crew Rostering is able to handle several rostering principles, of which the Weighted Fairshare model and the Strict Seniority model are the most common ones.

Rosters can be manually constructed (partly or in full) and modified as well as built by the optimizer. The optimizer supports running multiple scenarios in parallel, exploring different settings/balances of human and operational factors. This way the planning department stays in control of this crucial balance in every planning period.

The system architecture allows airline staff to maintain the configuration so that it continuously support the most current operational requirements – authority rules, union agreements and other operational considerations.

Jeppesen Crew Rostering integrates with all main Crew Management systems on the market, including airline-built system.
