Ops Planner (DSS) — Results Chart — running within Maximo


SILVERSTAR — FLIGHT SCHEDULER

Flight Scheduling is an additional layer of detail contained within an Ops Plan:


SILVERSTAR — CONFIGURATION VARIANCE REPORTING (CVR)

Identify the configuration differences between an aircraft/engine(s) at:

Track the cumulative configuration changes of an aircraft/engine(s) over a date range

Chart configuration change costs graphically based on a referenced Restoration Cost Register (RCR) — the RCR contains estimated costs of restoring equipment from one configuration to another (assembly-by-assembly)


SILVERSTAR — AIRCRAFT LEASE MANAGEMENT

Aircraft Lease Management — and especially Aircraft Lease Return Management — is a functionally complex and expensive challenge facing airlines and air forces

Silverstar's Aircraft Lease Management solution includes:


ALRM — Aircraft Lease Return Management

Silverstar's ALRM capability is based on the comprehensive management of aircraft and engine operating costs

Engine operating costs exceed (by far) the rest of the aircraft, so the following cost breakdowns [ source: Airfinance Journal ] are focused on engines, but similarly apply to the whole aircraft

Engine Operating Cost Factors:

Engine Direct Maintenance Costs (DMC) to maintain/restore engine serviceability can be split between:

Turbofan Engine

Silverstar automatically calculates the costs required to restore asset serviceability to an acceptable level in the context of a lease (specifically the lease return date) thereby providing opportunities to reduce those costs well in advance

Silverstar determines multiple conditions/variables that define the serviceability of an asset:

ASC — Asset Serviceability Condition

ASCR — ASC Rating (0 . . 1000)

PASCR — Parametric ASC Rating (0 . . 1000)

Silverstar calculates the minimum PASCR at end-of-lease to avoid lessor imposed penalties

The Silverstar Solution — Ops Planning combined with CVR and Serviceability Condition tracking/forecasting allows an organization to monitor, control, and plan for lease return costs

ALRP — Aircraft Lease Return Packaging

Silverstar's ALRP application helps organize, track, assemble, and verify Lease Return Packages

Executive Summary

An organization (i.e. airline or air force) that is leasing aircraft needs to know:

  1. The current PASCR of each leased aircraft today
  2. The minimum PASCR required by the lessor at each aircraft's end-of-lease date
  3. The projected PASCR for each aircraft at its end-of-lease date (based on an established ops plan)

Armed with these values, and an established RCR (Restoration Cost Register), Silverstar can calculate:

Aware of these primary costs, and other restoration costs, the organization can take action to reduce the deltas/costs well in advance of each end-of-lease via changes to its ops plan, aircraft assignments, maintenance plans, etc.
