The Boeing Flight Data Analytics suite comprises multiple advanced analytics solutions to enhance operator insights. Explore our most recent enhancements across tools such as Self-Service Analytics, Fuel Dashboard and Emissions Reporter.

Boeing’s Flight Data Analytics team feels fortunate to re-connect with customers across the country with the return of in-person events. In addition, they have been busy bringing several updates to the the suite of solutions. For more information on these updates, continue reading.

Self-Service Analytics: In-Service Data Collaboration Conference

The Boeing In-Service Data Program (ISDP) is a platform that allows airlines and suppliers to securely share fleet-wide reliability data with other ISDP members. In June, 130 of Boeing’s ISDP participants gathered both online and in person in Orange, California, for a 3-day hybrid event to present and discuss the benefits of sharing reliability data and how they use analytics and digital solutions to improve fleet performance and reliability.

“During our monthly analysis, we leverage ISDP data to analyze world fleet statics by fleet hours and fleet cycles, particularly related to logbook squawk numbers. Having the ability to compare our own performance against the world fleet assists us in identifying where we are out-performing, where there is room for improvement, which trends we should monitor, as well as determining potential root cause and corrective actions for any issues.”
- Deniz Ustaoglu, Reliability Chief Engineer at Turkish Airlines

The Self-Service Analytics (SSA) team presented at this year’s ISDCC conference, sharing the latest product updates and best practices for ISDP members to leverage worldwide fleet reliability data. SSA allows users to determine whether other airlines have encountered similar aircraft performance problems, and screen what actions might have successfully resolved the issue to improve reliability performance and operational efficiency.

The SSA team also offered small group training sessions during the conference, allowing approximately 40 participants to get hands-on experience with the SSA solution and learn how to use the ISDP, Maintenance Lifecycle Operating Cost (MLOC), and AHM dashboards to perform custom analysis and data visualization.

ISDP was initially designed to gain insight into the performance and maintenance requirements of the 777 as it went into service. Since its inception in 1994, the program has grown exponentially—from a standalone Boeing database to a shared system covering all Boeing airplane models. Today, more than eleven thousand tails and more than 50 suppliers participate in ISDP, sharing and leveraging data on all Boeing models. Combining this large repository of data with the power of SSA, operators worldwide can discover fleet-wide issues, research root causes, and analyze industry trends and benchmarks.

SSA and the ISDP program are available to all participating airlines and suppliers at no charge. To learn more about the ISDP program and how your airline can take advantage of SSA, please get in touch with ISDPCustomerEngagement@boeing.com.


Fuel Dashboard: Flight Deck Advisor Integration

Fuel Dashboard and FliteDeck Advisor customers can now access and leverage insights from both products directly from within the Fuel Dashboard custom analytics module Dashboard Editor. With parameters from FliteDeck Advisor and Fuel Dashboard now both available in Dashboard Editor, users can derive new findings by combining and exploring both data sets into customized reports and dashboards.

This new integration makes FliteDeck Advisor easily accessible for Fuel Dashboard customers, providing clear insight into where its recommendations are not being followed. In addition, it tracks the percentage of flights at which the recommended cost index is being flown and the savings generated.

To learn more about FliteDeck Advisor, which provides pilots with real-time, tail-specific, in-flight advisories to improve flight efficiencies, and Fuel Dashboard, which provides a comprehensive total fleet view of operational fuel consumption, please visit Flight and Fuel Optimization.

Emissions Reporter: Gearing Up for 2022 Reporting

For any airline reporting under CORSIA, EU-ETS, CH-ETS, or UK-ETS, a range of enhancements are coming to the Emissions Reporter (ER) solution in September 2022 to streamline the reporting experience.

Some of the new upcoming features include:
  • Recalculate results: You can reconfigure the built-in SET/CERT infilling and 60+ built-in data checks at any time and select when applied to the existing data.
  • More consistent carbon emissions calculations: We know tracking non-reportable flights is essential too! We’ve added functionality that quantifies the carbon from reportable and non-reportable flights to make accurate and consistent total emissions values available for internal sustainability reporting and comparison.
  • Easier fleet changes: Make multiple changes to multiple aircraft within your fleet, saving time and effort when major fleet changes occur.
  • More transparent data set: We have added “aircraft type” to the export sheet so ER can auto-assign/show the aircraft type within your data set. This feature is essential for those using SET/CERT functionality to see what aircraft type was used when data infilling.
  • Streamlined data handling: We have incorporated more consistent date and time formats to simplify data processing. The upload and download templates will also be in the same format to make it simpler to edit and reload data.
  • Enhanced data infilling: Manually editing SET/CERT values will be an option should you need to modify individual flights.
There are plans to update the SET/CERT models and CORSIA/ETS/ETSWAP report templates for 2022, and we will share new updates as we approach the end of the year.

If you are not using ER, it is not too late. The implementation only takes a few weeks, so you can be up and running in time for 2022 reporting. Please visit Emissions Reporter to learn more.
