A international airport on Friday evening. Suddenly all the gates in the D terminal stop working. Service personnel start looking for the fault but do not find it immediately. In the meantime, there are no available aircraft stands.
After twenty minutes, several aircraft commence the holdning pattern, waiting to land, a number of flights are delayed because the aircraft are stuck at the non-functioning gates, and the D terminal is filling up with annoyed passengers. All this means high costs and bad reputation for the airport.
A short circuit in one of the gate power systems occurred at the same time as a fault in the high pressure air control system. The service personnel was fooled by the double fault situation and spent precious time looking for a common explanation when there was none.
SOLUTION: AFDS / FAULT FINDER
With DHF/GoalArt Airport Fault Detection Systems (AFDS), the scenario would look better. The system immediately shows the two independent root faults on its screen. The service personnel double check the diagnosis, and immediately start repairs. Less than one minute is spent on searching for the faults. The interruption is hardly noticed by others.
At a typical terminal, DHF/GoalArt Airport Fault Detection System will increase the available gate time considerably. It will also decrease the number of stops because it can discover developing faults before they lead to failures.
ROI time will be less than 1 year.
GoalArt's partner DHF Airport Systems handles all information except technical questions concerning airport systems.
