APRON Report Summary

Project ID: 13274
Funded under: FP5-GROWTH
Country: Greece

Prototype validation: report on IT-prototype validation

This document has been produced within the framework of WP5 ("IT-Prototype Validation") of the "Aviation Policy information Resources based on Observatory Networks" (APRON) Project, sponsored by the European Commission (DG TREN). The objective of this report is to present the results of the evaluation process of the APRON observatory. The evaluation has taken place in two distinct phases:
- Laboratory testing;
- Demonstration testing.

The assessment of the APRON system during the Laboratory Testing Phase suggested that:
- The technical performance of the APRON system has exceeded the established performance levels for the established indicators.

- The user acceptance assessment demonstrates that the overall performance of the system in terms of its major functionalities is between “average” and “high”.

The assessment of the APRON system during the Demonstration Phase has produced the following results:

- The technical performance of the system under real-life conditions is satisfactory and has surpassed the established acceptance values.

- The user acceptance assessment results demonstrate that the overall performance of the system in terms of its major functionalities is between “average” and “high”.

- The APRON system was found to be cost-effective both by the entirety of the users who have participated in the Cost-Effectiveness Assessment and on a per-country basis.

The overall impression about the APRON system as this is reflected in D5 report was that it fulfils its objectives in terms of user acceptance and technical performance and that it provides the airport stakeholders with a cost-effective way to access data based on a one-stop shop concept.
