Short description   

At the beginning of 2008, Airbus decided to consolidate multiple operating system versions to Windows Vista with the objective to have as few OS masters running as possible. The following year, Airbus decided to move to Windows XP instead because Application Readiness in Vista was not manageable. Due to Microsoft support expiry for Windows 2000 in April 2010, Airbus started the deployment before Application Readiness was conducted. Coupled with non-existent asset management, the project almost failed at the end of 2009. Following crisis management the project was successfully delivered in 9 months.


project was delayed by 6 months, above budget by €1.5 million and application readiness was not properly performed.
