International audience; Performance metrics in the air traffic management (ATM) community are becoming a strategic issue, and they are getting more and more attention. However, defining such metrics is a difficult problem. In this paper, we show how arithmetic simulations can be used to give performance information. We also point out that many different metrics can be defined, each of them giving different results regarding efficiency. We conclude that an extreme caution must be applied when interpreting results.
