MINT’s unique method for entirely automatic scheduling was developed at the University of Kiel in northern Germany and in cooperation with Lufthansa Technical Training (LTT) starting in 1994. Generating the annual training schedule had been a totally manual process at this company up to this date. A remarkable improvement in resource utilization and costs reduction became apparent, because standardized routine processes could be accelerated significantly. As a consequence, in spring 1998, Joerg Latteier and Christian Hollmann founded their own company MINT MEDIA INTERACTIVE to promote their new product.
Over time and with a growing and changing user community, MINT extended the scope of its Training Management System (TMS) to include all relevant fields of aviation related training. Continuous improvement and new developments have led to the implementation of many powerful enhancements such as the very reliable record-keeping tool, a new automatic and cost based scheduling engine, many usability and user interface improvements and new, sophisticated reporting and data analysis tools. Finally, starting with the delivery of the fully web based MINT Version 9 in early 2014, the new fully integrated LMS became available.
MINT has grown during the years and owes its success to highly committed employees and their cumulative and extensive experience in the aviation industry and its requirements, and of course to their expertise in software development, integration and implementation. Our team enhances and improves the MINT system constantly and takes care of our customers and their individual needs around the clock.
