ATFM (Air Traffic Flow Management) keeps air traffic flows safe and orderly. When the estimated workload exceeds capacity limit, traffic demand is controlled. In Japan, The ATFM system estimates controller's workload by a lot of parameter that depend on sector characteristics represented by traffic flow. The calculation of the value needs a lot of analysis. Author proposes a simple method for estimating the workload created by the traffic situation.
