airliner, scheduling is easy (Since they match up with when a commercial passenger flight is flying that way. However, If it is a dedicated cargo plane scheduling can be a little harder.Scheduling sensitivity is just as important as scheduling itself. As I mentioned before depending on the company air cargo operators have many different clients. These clients expect that their parcel/ package comes in on time. With many clients
3THE IMPACT OF AIR CARGO OPERATIONSclamoring for your company’s attention it can be a bit of a hassle. This compounded with the never-ending possibility of hold ups and delays and it can turn scheduling from a hassle to a nightmare. One way companies handle scheduling and scheduling sensitivity is Critical Chain Scheduling and Buffer Management (CC/BM) ( also referred to as Schedule Risk Analysis (SRA)) “CC/BM relies on deterministic scheduling techniques in order to build a resource feasible schedule that is made robust by inserting various types of buffers (project buffer, feeding buffer, resource buffer), and improves the schedule performance during project execution to meet the deadline through buffer monitoring. Consequently, the size of buffers and how they are monitoreddirectly determine the project completion time as well as the schedule risk, and hence
