APACHE Workshop


The objective of this workshop is to present to the aviation community and discuss a set of novel and updated Key Performance Areas/Indicators proposed to be used for performance targeting, measuring, base-lining and benchmarking in future SESAR technical and operational ATM concept (2020+). Such metrics will be used in the context of APACHE project in which a new Performance Framework will be developed based on novel metrics, advanced simulation and optimization tools and new assessment methodologies.

The updated set of Key Performance Areas/Indicators is based on specific objectives of the APACHE project:

  • to analyse the current Performance Scheme and identify areas of improvement and limitations that may impede to effectively capture the ATM performance under either the current or future SESAR concept of operations; and
  • to find and propose new metrics and methodologies capable of measuring the performance of the ATM for planning and monitoring with a higher degree of precision and reliability than nowadays.

New APACHE Performance Scheme will be used then to measure the impact on ATM KPAs under different assumptions and hypotheses in line with the SESAR CONOPS 2020+; and to analyse the interdependencies between the different KPAs at the Pareto-frontier of the ATM performance, by finding the theoretical optimal limits for each KPA and assessing how the promotion of one KPA may actually change (and in which proportion and direction) the performance of the other KPAs.

Target participants

SESAR community, R&D Centres, Air navigation service providers, Performance experts...
