The objective of the three months trial operations phase was to introduce all local partners involved to the A-CDM procedure and to test the supporting systems. The data exchange to the Network Management Unit in Brussels via DPI was initially tested by the CFMU test system. Because of the strong procedure adherence by all stakeholders and high quality of Target Takeoff Times (TTOT) transmitted to the CFMU, the permanent connection to the CFMU live system could be realized on first of February 2011, 9 days earlier than scheduled.
Objectives of trial operation phase
- Local implementation of A-CDM procedure at FRA: A-CDM process will be standard procedure
- Connection to European ATFM network: Several testing phases with CFMU (network management unit)
