Planning (long-term) maintenance on Schiphol’s taxiways and runways is a complicated puzzle, which is aggravated by the desire to disrupt operations as little as possible during maintenance works. MovingDot has helped Schiphol Airport to gain insight into the operational effects of taxiway maintenance.

MovingDot was commissioned by the Asset Management department of Schiphol Airport to produce a visual overview of the effects of maintenance on Schiphol’s taxiway system, opting to quantify these effects on the basis of delay minutes. The purpose of this overview is to gain an initial insight into the effects of maintenance on the taxiway system for the development of the taxiway maintenance strategy. This allows for a better balance between all factors that play a role in planning.

The results were generated using the Taxiway Renovation Tool, a tool developed by MovingDot.
