ATLANTA - Song™, Delta Air Lines new low-fare air service, has reduced the time that arriving aircraft return to service to 45-50 minutes, significantly shorter than the industry standard, according to a paper being presented at the annual meeting of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS®)
"To passengers, this means that theyll be able to access more flights per day, so there will be greater frequency and more convenience," comments Irina Ioachim, one of the researchers. "For Delta, this means better aircraft utilization. Since the aircraft themselves are one of the airliners most expensive assets, this research is important to the company, too."
Irina Ioachim and Wendy Lochart of Delta Technology, Deltas wholly owned subsidiary, are presenting a paper, "50 Minute Turn Simulation," at the annual meeting of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS®), which takes place from Oct. 19 -22 at the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta. The paper will be presented on Tuesday, October 21 at 1:30 PM in Mart Room K.
Operations researchers use math and science to improve decision-making, management, and operations in a host of fields.
The INFORMS annual meeting includes sessions on topics applied to numerous fields, including air safety, the military, e-commerce, information technology, energy, transportation, marketing, telecommunications, and health care. More than 2,000 papers are scheduled to be delivered.
The General Chair of the convention is Prof. Donna Llewelyn, Georgia Institute of Technology. Additional information about the conference is at http://www.informs.org/Conf/Atlanta2003 and http://www.informs.org/Press.
The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS®) is an international scientific society with 10,000 members, including Nobel Prize laureates, dedicated to applying scientific methods to help improve decision-making, management, and operations. Members of INFORMS work in business, government, and academia. They are represented in fields as diverse as airlines, health care, law enforcement, the military, the stock market, and telecommunications.
