Note

In the ATM operational concept, three classifications of airspace users are considered:

a) ICAO-compliant manned flight operations (the largest segment by far)

b) ICAO non-compliant manned flight operations; and

c) flight operations of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

ICAO-compliant manned flight operations are those conducted in accordance with ICAO provisions (e.g. SARPs, PANS). ICAO-compliant airspace users include:

a) all civil aircraft operators (i.e. those engaged in commercial air transport (passenger, mail and cargo services)), aerial work, air taxi operators, business aviation, private air transport, sporting and recreational aviation etc., and

b) the portion of States’ users operating State aircraft using civil air traffic rules.

ICAO non-compliant manned flight operations are those conducted by State aircraft which cannot comply for operational or technical reasons.

Flight operations of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), a growing segment of airspace users, include both civil and military applications of UAV technology. In certain situations, UAV technology is seen as a more cost-effective solution than the use of conventional aeroplanes or helicopters.

Definition

2.[performance indicator] Current/past performance, expected future performance (estimated as part of forecasting and performance modelling), as well as actual progress in achieving performance objectives is quantitatively expressed by means of indicators (sometimes called key performance indicators, or KPIs).

2.ICAO (2009) doc. 9883, Manual on Global Performance of the Air Navigation System

Note

To be relevant, indicators need to correctly express the intention of the associated performance objective. Since indicators support objectives, they should be defined having a specific performance objective in mind.

Indicators are not often directly measured. They are calculated from supporting metrics according to clearly defined formulas, e.g. cost-per-flight-indicator equal Sum(cost)/Sum(flights). Performance measurement is therefore done through the collection of data for the supporting metrics. (same source)

Note

The SESAR Work Packages B, C and 16.6 apply scrum on the level of the work package management. The scrum methodology has been adapted in the framework of the SESAR programme so it can be used on the level of the work package management.

Scrum contains a set of predefined processes and roles. The main roles in Scrum and their equivalents in the framework of SESAR are: 1.the “ScrumMaster”, who maintains the processes, in SESAR it is the the Sub-Work Package Manager x.00

2.the “Product Owner”, who represents the stakeholders and the business; this role is performed by the SJU Programme Manager of the Work Package

3.the “Team”, a cross-functional group who do the actual analysis, design, implementation, testing, etc.; the project managers of the Work Package represent the team
