Maximized efficiency and usage
Fox’s resource management software provides the most comprehensive resource management system for training centers and operational units, ensuring optimized resource allocation and utilization and improved operational efficiency for your organization.
Effective resource management is critical to successful training and mission planning, programming and execution. The Fox tool handles all physical and human resources (aircraft, simulators, classrooms, instructors, trainees, and more) at each stage in training delivery and mission operations, from definition and planning to allocation and post-utilization analysis.
Centralized, automated management
The Fox system is fully automated and centralized, with all human and physical resource management activities occurring from a single location. From setting up a new database and entering new entities into the system, to monitoring cadre proficiencies and updating the status of physical resources, Fox streamlines and optimizes all of your organization’s resource management processes.
The resource management software allocates resources according to defined mission and task requirements, taking into account constraints and both short and long term planning requirements. Resources are assigned to a specific task based on availability and its suitability to the task, resulting in improved utilization and cost savings.
Using workload balancing, the system evaluates the load on heavily utilized resources and assists in their distribution according to the nature of the task and predefined attributes in order to ensure that they are not allocated to tasks over and above task requirements. Tight integration with Fox’s Scheduling and Planning systems also enables managers to better supervise allocation costs in the near and long term, improving the organization’s budget management processes.
The Fox resource management system is configured to select the least costly, yet most effective resource for a given task in order to reduce costs and allocation inefficiencies in your organization. The system also enables managers to configure resource definitions at the lowest level for a particular activity to ensure efficient utilization based on actual needs.
The management of costs is further improved through advanced tracking and supervisory tools that monitor the utilization of resources and deviations beyond task requirements; the cost of use for a particular resource, and an analysis of human resource hours in relation to specific tasks.
The Fox system’s advanced capabilities enable users to configure each resource in many different ways depending on task requirements as well as manage resources across multiple operational units. The system is also capable of recognizing changes in planned allocation such as when an assignment is not executed the system will reassign that resource for a new task or to another unit.
Utilization trends and analysis
Fox’s software enables managers to supervise, control and develop insights into resource allocation and utilization through its range of reports, dashboards and alerts. The Fox Dashboard is particularly valuable for managers seeking a dynamic and up-to-date view of where their organization stands in terms of utilization and gaps. Fox Reports are valuable in identifying utilization trends and how best to improve future allocation and usage plans. Fox Alerts ensure resource allocation issues are addressed before problems arise.
