Airport software & data

Airport operations generate an increasing amount of data from an expanding number of sources.

One area in particular that can provide essential operational information is the baggage handling system, but data is only useful if it is analysed and understood properly.

At BEUMER Group, we have worked with data for a number of years and have used these learnings to extend our services to the predictive and prescriptive level.

BEUMER’s digital capability offers a growing suite of data-driven tools and services in addition to our baggage handling software. These tools empower airport staff across maintenance, operational, and management levels to make informed decisions with greater confidence.

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF DATA VISUALISATION

When working with data, organisations sometimes focus solely on the collection of data, and miss out on the learnings.

At BEUMER Group, we understand that the true value lies in the decisions dataleads to make. To ensure make the baggage handling software data relatable, we work with data visualisation across various abstraction layers:

  • The most complex and challenging layer is the dashboard-layer, which on one hand allows users to mine data and reach a deep understanding of different cases, and on the other hand also requires a certain systems insight and analytical approach.
  • To support users in navigating the noise, we offer a number of translations, such as strategic KPI’s, OEE’s, sustainability index and a process overview – each designed to provide users with a more simple system overview.
  • And to complete the visualisation package, we offer a digital twin which turns the layout into a storyteller. The FLOW Twin by BEUMER Group provides visualisation of BHS flow and data in real-time as well as historical data, and thereby provides an easy and intuitive understanding of an otherwise complex system.

Our airport value proposition

The key components to accomplishing the strategic ambition for your airport are an overall efficient and reliable high-level control (HLC) solution, a flexible and expandable framework, data transparency and a professional user experience for different user groups.

Our airport value proposition offers a differentiated position in the market as we focus both on team, tools and system:

BHS system

A baggage handling system designed by BEUMER Group is born digital. Being born digital lays the foundation for capturing baggage, equipment and process data on the system, element and sensor levels.

At BEUMER Group we see digitalisation as an unavoidable step towards sustainability as this will guide the decision process by making critical information available.

BAGGAGE HANDLING SOFTWARE AND DATA SOLUTIONS

The Software & Data solutions provided by BEUMER Group act as the interface between the physical system and the users operating, maintaining and managing it.

To enable users to make faster and better decisions, visualisation of data is provided at different abstraction layers ranging from dashboards to the digital twin. Data transparency is crucial to understanding current BHS performance and optimising for the future. The Software & Data solution therefore includes the ability to share data with existing BI solutions.

O&M team

A professional user experience gives your organisation’s baggage professionals, who work within maintenance, operations and management, the right tools and the right views to enable them to, not only excel in their respective jobs, but also to have a lean O&M team.

When linking the BHS System, SW & Data Solutions and the O&M Team, organisations achieve what we call Data Driven Asset Management.

Data DRIVEN asset management

Understanding and effectively utilising data are indispensable tools, especially in the context of optimizing baggage handling systems and their associated software.

As the demands for shorter connection times, efficient passenger handling, and enhanced passenger experiences continue to rise, the importance of data-driven insights becomes paramount.

These factors exert significant pressure on the maintenance, operation, and management of baggage handling systems and the corresponding baggage handling software.

Recognizing this, BEUMER Group has taken proactive steps by establishing a data warehouse. This warehouse seamlessly integrates real-time data streams from an expanding network of sites, empowering organizations to harness the power of data analytics in their baggage handling software solutions.
