An aviation squadron's flight schedule has a major impact on that organization's performance and morale. The ability to consistently draft a correct flight schedule that accounts for all applicable factors, requires a flight schedules officer with significant experience and good judgement. Even with those qualities, the task will normally be a lengthy one. The traditional procedure of using grease boards is antiquated in this age of microcomputers and user-friendly software. An integrated database application and expert system would provide the capability of expediting the flight scheduling process while simultaneously producing a consistently high quality schedule. It would also provide the training to elevate non-expert schedulers to an expert level of performance.
