An Optimizing On-duty Scheduling of Air Traffic Controller Considering Fatigue Factors
Abstract— As the rapid development of the world's civil aviation and the rapid increase of flights in recent years, the fatigue of the controllers has become a challenges in the field of civil aviation safety management. The state-of-the-art on-duty scheduling methods are hardly considering the ATC fatigue. Firstly, this paper introduces the definition of fatigue and its influence factors. Then, the causes of fatigue and the influence of on-duty scheduling based on ATC fatigue are emphatically analysed. Then, the mode and restrictive factors of on-duty scheduling are explained. Finally, according to the collected data from area zone control unit in Xinjiang Bureau of CAAC, an optimize Scheduling for Air Traffic Controller is given. This paper provides the control unit theoretical guidance to the analysis and mitigation of the controllers fatigue, and further enriches the theory of the fatigue management of the controllers.
