eLoadsheet is a modular system with several deployment variations available. eLoadsheet in essence consists of the core weight and balance functionality and the user interface and it is fully compliant with IATA AHM 560/565 standards. The eLoadsheet is designed to increase productivity, efficiency and flexibility when it comes to load control.
Load Control Control Process
eLoadsheet fully supports centralized load control method and integrates with legacy systems to automate the load control process as much as possible. Manual loading through visual drag and drop with intuitive auto load algorithm provides users with the optimal load for the aircraft resulting in more efficient distribution of weight and gain of optimal center of gravity (CG). Auto load algorithm calculates the optimal location and distribution based on individual or accumulative limits and constraints for bays, holds and compartments. Dynamic limits can also be added to define further any limitation of a section or sections.
eLoadsheet is able to monitor lateral balance and asymmetrical limits which are used as input in the algorithm used for distribution. Array of weight and balance services published to allow 3rd party interfaces to communicate with the service layer. Published using Windows Communication Framework which enables communication with standard such as SOAP, Web Services and others. Interfaces to data and information on flights, passengers and cargo accelerate the aircraft handling process and any manually input data is thoroughly validated.
eLoadsheet uses 3 tiers: Interface layer, Load control services layer and a Data access layer. eLoadsheet also as a forth layer which is the presentation layer which hosts the user interface. The N-Tier architecture makes it possible for eLoadsheet to separate database specific code from business logic making it easier to transform from one database platform to the next. It also gives the opportunity to add a new interface layer for new client applications without the need to re-engineer the other layers. The intuitive user interface is web based and fully supports the latest versions of web browsers. Support for Windows Mobile is planned and also an offline desktop version will be made available to support Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) configurations.
Load sheet creation and provisioning can be done on printers, ACARS and post departure messages such as CPM, LDM, and UCM are created automatically. eLoadsheet also supports a number of other messages and documents needed.
