The processing and merging of the individual process steps is interpreted as a never-ending work process, in which the updated partial results must always be embedded in the overall result. As a result, new or updated market and company data can be brought into the decision-making process and the entire system kept up to date. The individual steps are coordinated in terms of content and timing and together form a planning cycle. The airport development concept supported by MAPS can thus also be seen as the result of successive development cycles within which the individual process steps run in an iterative form until a satisfactory and inherently homogeneous airport development concept is present.
The market and corporate analysis comprises the collection of basic data, the transfer of the data into the planning and information system and the targeted analysis of the data. The market and corporate analysis attempts to identify or quantify the “driving forces” behind developments in various planning areas and thus forms the basis of all planning activities. MAPS offers a comprehensive tool catalog for analyzing historical market and sales developments, analyzing personnel and asset capacities, analyzing the financial position and recording external effects in the vicinity of the airport.
