Calculus permits fast analysis of economic consequences when you alter any of the variables that affect your airline. It handles great complexity via familiar Microsoft Office.  With Calculus you can take a look at your traffic program, your predicted passenger volume and the corresponding fares with financial eyes - typically for the next year. 

 

1: input

Delegate the data collection, with all station data in relevant Excel sheets, to people close to the sources.

Choose the verifying tool appropriate to each collection, e.g. have the airports matched against the current traffic program when Calculus reads the Station workbook.

costs collected in Excel sheets
currency simulation
2: scenarios

Simulate the impact of special types of cost by using fictitious currencies, e.g. invent a fuel currency or a crew currency. Elaborate different sheets and study the financial outcome; how sensitive is your company to changes you cannot control?

3: allocation

Based on leg attributes like Arr / BLH / pax / ... the amount in currency is accumulated to the designated calculus item, e.g. :
5727 SEK per ARR at ARN with ACtype 734 add to Landing fee.

4: passengers

A new base is created when each leg gets some passenger figures. On this "pax" level most revenues and some costs are calculated.

Number of "class" passengers are made available per OD's or per flights (deriving advantage from PAXFLOW Legload). It is of course possible to give ticket fares on this "class" level.

5: verification

The calculus contents are possible to analyze both in time, e.g. month or week or day,  and to follow backwards to the sources, e.g. list all objects contributing to this summary.

You get easily an overview of the result by looking at the graphic representation of cost/revenue per area and further down to routes or flights.

The numerical information is always accessible in Excel lists.
