Abstract:

The OHare Runway Configuration Management System CMS is an interactive computer algorithm designed to assist the Assistant Chief of the OHare facility in selecting runway configurations which minimize delay. The current version of CMS utilizes a full screen inputoutput structure to enhance near-term implementation within OHares manual ATC environment. This paper presents an overview of the runway selection logic including the impacts of transitioning between configurations and balancing demand and describes the system hardware configuration and the functional responsibilities of the participants in the OHare application. The historical development of CMS, future potential enhancements in system logic and system implementation, and application of CMS at other airports are also discussed. Author
