Performance Management & Network impact Assessment


The SESAR performance management process steers the overall R&I work, with reference to the SESAR performance ambitions specified in the European ATM Master Plan. The SESAR performance management process reconciles and maps the performance assessments and results delivered by the R&I projects with the SESAR performance ambitions. It also ensures aggregating these results through the simulation of the relevant SESAR Solutions with the dual objective of delivering an ECAC-wide performance view and supporting for deployment, the development of the Master Plan level 3 implementation objectives based on these aggregated performance simulation results.

Detailed Call Description

To achieve the expected outcomes, the activities to be performed under the leadership of the SESAR 3 JU will focus on the following areas.

  • Performance framework:
    • maintain reference methods and performance framework (upon the explicit request of the SESAR 3 JU);
    • if required, train and coach R&I project staff to ensure the correct application of the performance methodologies;
    • at the request of the SESAR 3 JU, contribute to solutions maturity gates to confirm that a robust performance approach based on the methodology has been applied by the projects.
  • Performance assessment and network impact assessment:
    • capture and aggregate the performance assessments delivered (for completed R&I) and planned to be delivered (for R&I in progress) by R&I projects;
    • run integrated simulation on multiple SESAR Solutions, duly replicating observed real-world operational environments to assess the impact that they could have at network level;
    • maintain a dashboard showing actual versus planned network performance impact enabled by SESAR 3 JU work programme delivery.
