1       Introduction 

Route Analysis 

This topic covers how to recompute an analysis and generate a route using tracks. 

We estimate that this will take 5 minutes to complete.

2       Detailed Explanation 

Analysis recompute and flight tracks

This topic will show you how to recompute a route analysis from the Plan screen and how to generate a route with (AUS, NAT or PAC) tracks. You need to recompute the route analysis if you make changes on the Plan screen, for example, change departure time or aircraft.

Interaction 1 Click the Flight 0100 list item.

Interaction 1 Click the Plan menu item.

The Route Analysis, whether displayed on in the Route Group on the PLANC UI, or here in the ROUTE UI, will display the available routes orderd by the selected optimization method.  Possible optimization methods include Least Cost, Least Fuel, and Least Time.

The Route Analysis will display company specific saved city-pair routes, FAA Preferred Routes, IFPS Routes, and/or available CDRs.

 

In the event that there are no city-pair routings available the system can be configured by NAVBLUE Support to automatically generate an optimized route.  This function can generate a single "OPT" optimized route, or a route for each of the 3 available optimization methods.

Interaction 1 Click the Recompute route analysis... list item.

The Route Analysis can be recomputed at any time.  A user should accomplish a recomputation of the analysis if any pertintent values are changed on the plan screen. 

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Route menu item.

Interaction 1 Click the CMP (MAN) list item.

Interaction 1 Click beside the Save button on the map.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Airspace button.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Tracks menu item.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Tracks checkbox.

Note that this display shows the tracks in "Both" directions.  The user can select "Westbound" or "Eastbound" if they wish to view tracks for a specific direction only.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the button on the map.

Once you have clicked the Tracks checkbox the PAC tracks are displayed on the map.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the New button.

Generating a route with PAC tracks

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the MTTA input field.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Enter PAC-E MTTA into the MTTA field.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Generate button.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click  beside the Save button on the map.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the button.

You will have to adjust the map to view the new route. 

The generated route uses the PAC-E track.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Apply & Compute button.

While an ad hoc route can be generated to align with a specific track, as shown here.  The system can be configured to automatically generate routes compliant with each applicable track.
