Collaborative Decision Making (CDM)
Welcome to Collaborative Decision Making (or CDM), stop three of your tour!
CDM is a phrase that has very broad implications. It is really more a philosophy on how to conduct business between the various components of aviation transportation, both government and industry. There are 24 airlines currently participating in this initiative.
CDM is a specific FAA program, managed and sponsored by AUA-700. There are two central principles to CDM:
- Better information will lead to better decision making
- Tools and procedures need to be in place to enable the ATCSCC and the National Airspace System (NAS) users to more easily respond to changing conditions.
