S4A Smart LOAD application establishing the world’s truly exception based weight and balance and load planning system. This solution fully automate and optimize the load planning activity, engaging agents only when economic or loading irregularities occur. It is an extremely powerful yet simple to use solution, supporting both centralized and de-centralized airline load control models.
The system perfectly combines the needs of airport ground operations departments and handling companies working in a multi-customer environment and with multi-role capability, including dispatch, load agent, freight, ramp agent, cockpit, engineer, etc.
While optimizing, Smart LOAD considers cargo compatibilities, dangerous goods limitations and handling, company loading priorities, MEL/CDL (Minimum Equipment List / Configuration Deviation List) limits, special passenger handling conditions, and the most fuel efficient center of gravity, ensuring that the best operational and most economical loading solution is used.
Through the union of the Smart LOAD and Smart COMM (optional) applications, loading restrictions, irregularity handling, and direct communication are no longer challenges for any Airline.
Smart LOAD provides airlines the following:
Flexibility to perform either centralized or de-centralized modelled load planning environment(s),
Fully automating their load planning, monitoring and execution while always optimizing the aircrafts Center of Gravity,
User intervention should only be required on an exception basis,
Flexibility to configure AHM560 data and automation to support the end to end load planning process,
Automated flexible cargo deck configuration, based on lock design and ULD’s limitations,
Compliant with weight & balance manual restrictions and limitations,
Validation checks in regards to Dangerous Goods restrictions,
