A smart, aviation-centric data quality check system for billing, reporting, and analysis

tNexus DQCS is a data quality management system that enables airports and airlines maintain the highest quality of flight data for finance and operations.

Low data quality can cost airports and airlines millions in lost revenue and productivity

Flight data constantly changes, and it originates from multiple systems across different stakeholders. This makes it susceptible to inconsistencies and incompleteness that negatively affect billing, reporting, and analysis.

Inaccurate data can lead stakeholders to make incorrect decisions, which can have huge repercussions on the entire airport operations. Additionally, data discrepancies can result in disputes between airports and airlines as well as in laborious manual audits that delay the billing cycle.

Validate data while flights are still in the operational time window

tNexus DQCS is an aviation-centric data quality management system that helps airports and airlines validate, analyze, and monitor flight data in real-time. It is capable of running synchronous checks across multiple sources for the same data element, thus providing a consistent and reliable data feed.

The core of this solution is a sophisticated and flexible rules engine that captures and flags inconsistencies in data while flights are still in the operational time window. This enables operators to take corrective measures on the spot and rectify data for billing and operations more efficiently.

Key Features

Rules Designer

The system offers a flexible, user-friendly Rules Designer where operators can define extensive and complex business rules. These rules can range from simple queries, such as checking for empty mandatory data fields, to very complex mathematical formulas.

They can be defined and modified by the end users or the system administrator. These rules are then applied to all new flights. All standard and relevant data elements are available to the end users in the Rules Designer. It provides access to Default Rules and Custom Rules.

Default Rules

These are predefined and preconfigured business rules that cover the standard completeness and plausibility checks, such as missing and invalid data (e.g. missing aircraft off-block time, missing aircraft in-block time, and missing total pax).
Custom Rules

These are rules defined by the business users to tailor the data quality checking process to their specific requirements. Users can configure custom rules using the intuitive, easy-to-use expression builder that follows natural business language.

Data Quality Manager

The DQM module displays all the flight data elements that users have access to, depending on their profile access level and privileges. Users can view arrival or departure flights from the respective tabs. The grid shows all the flights within a user-configurable fixed or rolling time window. Basic and advanced filtering, searching, and sorting capabilities are available.

Advanced Analytics

Built-in analytics helps identify data failure causes and patterns that business users can analyze to deploy the necessary corrective actions.

Key Benefits

Shorten the billing cycle

By providing airports the ability to rectify data issues instantly, instead of performing lengthy month-end audits, and through integration with the billing system, flight data is immediately available for billing. Users can rectify data in their respective source system(s) or, if needed, from within tNexus DQCS itself.

Make informed decisions

The system automatically flags flights that failed their configured data quality checks or are missing key data elements, all within the tactical planning window. By knowing issues in a timely manner, planners, controllers, and reconciliation users can make more informed decisions.

Avoid disputes

Its ability to compare data between the airport’s and the airlines’ systems helps detect and resolve discrepancies immediately, before they turn later on into causes of disputes

Cleanse your data dynamically and flexibly

With tNexus DQCS’ sophisticated rules engine, operators can create and modify business rules on the fly—without interrupting the system and without the need for vendor involvement.
