Siemens’ Logistics and Airport Solutions is showcasing its Siamos modular software solution for airport operations at Passenger Terminal Expo 2015 in Paris, France.
Applications such as airport performance management, flight planning, resource management, data analysis and dashboards, statistics, reporting and billing as well as flight information display systems help the stakeholders to optimize airport operations.
Siamos responds to the increasing needs of airport operators who urgently need a comprehensive overview of the increasingly complex overall processes with their extreme division of labor. They need to know the causes of problems and exceptional situations right away to be able to react immediately. The different control and management systems normally only allow for a limited view and supply isolated data.
With Siamos, Siemens provides a software platform that integrates, processes and visualizes operational airport data. Airport operators can continually analyze the entire operation in real time and take appropriate action to adapt it optimally and flexibly to their operational and commercial targets.
Information from all areas of airport operation can be integrated via standardized interfaces. Siamos supports all main organizational units involved in airport operations and provides decision-making support and forecasts. Systems handling energy management, building management or the control of arrival, departure and transfer areas can be integrated, too. Using an adaptive set of rules, Siamos makes suggestions on the basis of accumulated data to improve the management of operations, helping operators to make effective decisions. Linking the different but interacting processes can achieve overall optimization and thus boost operational efficiency.
Visitors to stand 1055 at Passenger Terminal Expo can learn about the different Siamos software applications for airports and hear about recent case studies, including the Airport Response Coordination Center (ARCC) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which recently commissioned Siemens Logistics and Airport Solutions to design and implement the Siamos Dashboard at the ARRC. The Siamos Dashboard helps identifying the status of actual and anticipated critical airport resources. It monitors many of the most important landside and airside operations. The overall objective is to improve the efficiency of airport operations and the effectiveness of first responders.
In China, at Shenyang International Airport, Siemens played a major role in transferring all operational activities to the new Terminal 3. Siemens’ scope of supply included system customization, interface development, system integration, remote access, trainings and warranty for two large LCD screens in the departure area as well as 400 TFT monitor displays, plus workstations for airline users. Siemens’ Flight Information Display System (FIDS) has guided travelers safely through the new terminal from day one.
