Masdima - Multi-Agent System for Disruption Management
Keywords: Disruption management Airline operations Multi-agent systems Learning
MASDIMA (Multi-Agent System for Disruption Management) is a system that aims to manage the operation of airlines, flights and monitoring the unexpected events that may affect and cause flight delays. These events can affect the aircraft, crews and passengers and MASDIMA analyzes the impact on these three dimensions, looking for the best integrated solution (including the solution to the airplane, crew and passengers) and complying with the time available for arriving to a solution. MASDIMA is more than a problem-solving algorithm. It is a system with a large degree of automation, distributed and autonomous with decision-making ability and learning, which replaces several existing functions in the operational control centers of the airlines. Therefore, the cost savings for an airline goes beyond those which are obtained with the optimization of solutions, allowing effective savings in the structure and functioning of the control center.
