  • Oversee and analyze training data to improve operations
  • Generate built-in and customized reports, graphs and dashboards to comply with regulatory & corporate reporting requirements and audits
  • Track all aspects of your training operation to make real-time training improvements
  • Identify training weaknesses by revealing overall training health with information such as student and instructor performance trends; individual student and instructor results; asset utilization and capacity, schedules, compliance and qualification status
  • Create and print reports of training and scheduling records from Fox’s recordkeeping module and directly from the calendar schedules
  • Filter and sort report data for easy analysis
  • Export various types of graphs, matrices and table reports to Word, Excel, PDF, HTML and other standard/common formats
  • Automatically disseminate reports via email and user dashboard notifications

  • Transform data into meaningful Business Intelligence (BI) to improve and optimize decisions and performance

Patented Optimization Engines

Capture real-world complexities and create valid, feasible and optimized schedules and plans with Fox’s unique algorithm-based optimization engine.

Define different optimization goals such as minimum cost, maximum throughput, specific type of training priorities, resource coverage, training continuity and more. You can even combine multiple goals.

Business rules
Define different sets of business rules and policies to ensure schedules are valid and to indicate scheduling rule violations.

Preferences
Define preferences that the automated scheduling tools will consider and try to respect. Schedules are not only valid but also feasible, and the optimization engine has more flexibility than if those preferences were defined as rules.

Economic Modelling
Define values and ‘virtual’ costs for training activities and resources that will be considered by Fox optimization algorithms. In addition, define incentives and penalties to expand the optimization model to include complex considerations.


Fox’s hybrid algorithms & heuristics produce the highest achievable level of valid scheduling efficiency, for training optimization.


  • Attain the highest level of valid scheduling
  • Reduce training costs
  • Minimize scheduling and recovery time
  • Expand training capacity and maximize resource utilization
  • Decrease usage of third-party equipment rental
  • Improve trainer and trainee satisfaction
  • Assure compliance with regulatory and union rules – eliminate regulation penalties
  • Improve control and decision-making
  • Diminish time-consuming tasks to focus on the big picture
