Th Fuel Management and Allocation Model determines the optimal strategy for fueling aircraft and can be used to support both short and long-term planning. It has been used operationally by the Fuels Management and Flight Control Departments of National Airlines for over two years, resulting in multi-million dollar savings. The model specifies the best fueling station and vendor for each flight, based on prices, availability, fuel burn, flight data, and cost of tankerage. The model also used extensive sensitivity analysis techniques to alert management as to when a new policy may be required. /Author/
