Project Challenges

The main challenges of the A-CDM@FRA Implementation Project were:

  • The project structure involving different parties with differing goals
  • Necessity to change the fundamental understanding of the departure planning process (pre departure sequence versus first come first serve)
  • A very tight time schedule due to other predetermined airport projects in connection with only limited resources available
  • Substantial adaptation of the system‘s architecture with only a small time frame for the implementation in addition to the requirement of having no adverse effects on operations
