  25. 25. Deployment planningPerformance improvement planning cycle
  26. 26. Deployment planningQuestions a State should answer in response to the ASBUs• What performance is required?• How is current performance measured?• What changes could deliver the requiredimprovement?• What are the timescales?• How much will it cost?• How is the transition managed?• What does it mean for our aviation policy?• Are institutional or organisational changesrequired to maximise benefits?
  27. 27. Deployment planningHarmonisation vs interoperability• Harmonisation implies everyone uses the same solutions• Interoperability implies everyone uses solutions that suit their requirements butcan operate side-by-side• Harmonised solutions seem simpler and cheaper at the global level• But genuine interoperability can reduce costs at local level and deliver betteroverall cost efficiency
  28. 28. Deployment planningReplace “First Come First Served” with “Best Equipped Best Served”Equipped aircraft benefit……others are not penalised.
  29. 29. Deployment planningCity pairsFor routes between complex airports:• Assume high level of equipage• Implement sequencing tools and controlled time of arrival• Procedures that deliver efficiency and predictability on specific routes• Best equipped aircraft gain access; aircraft not on the route are not penalised.
  30. 30. Conclusion• ASBUs offer a structured approach to planning ATMmodernisation:• They define everything that might be needed• It is a local or regional responsibility to define what isactually needed• This needs to take account of the performance requirementsand the cost pressures of airspace users
