Finnair extends Carmen Pairing and Rostering to cockpit crew

Finnair successfully implemented the extension of both Carmen Pairing and Rostering systems to their cockpit crew. Further, the existing cabin Pairing and Rostering systems were extended to all fleets.

Type 2 Solutions enhanced the integration of the two systems ProCrew and Carmen by extending their existing two-way interface which transfers production data from ProCrew to Carmen and vice-versa.

The technologies which were used to build the interface include: DB/2; SQL Server; Oracle; XML; XSL; XSD and Visual Basic.

The project was dubbed “Parrot” and lasted for almost 6 months; it was put into production on June 17, 2004.
