Lufthansa Systems Blog - "load control productivity" tag
Hello again for part two of my blog sequence “How to achieve Automation in Load Control”
A high level of automation is one, if not the most important objective for Load Control organizations within airlines. In this blog I speak about selected automation triggers that might help a airlines to identify fields of improvement within their Weight & Balance department.
In Load Control automation can be described as the use of system support to simplify processes. But it appears that the benefits gained through automation are perceived differently between the management and the user level. It is the management’s task to take these gaps into consideration when deciding to make their load control department more efficient through automation support.
Buying "a fully automated" Load Control Solution seems to be for many airlines the perfect ultimate key to achieve increased productivity. But looking in a more holistic way on this topic, I found out, that cultural influence in work organizations plays a much more important role, than one might believe. Moreover: Culture most often can´t be “seen”. But it is there!
