Optimizing fleet distribution and incident coverage 

The Dutch Air Support and Aviation Police (LVP) had two disconnected decision support systems (DSS) to inform strategic and operational decision making. They wanted to bridge the gap between the strategic and operational decision support tools to improve the performance of its helicopter fleet and make efficient use of these assets. A prototype tool that combines crime data and police resources was created to deliver a complete tactical plan for helicopter capacity utilization. The tool leverages an AIMMS-based model to simultaneously schedule surveillance flights and helicopter crews in order to improve performance.
