Mixability configurator

Models all system dependencies of the new and highly complex A350 and A380 aircraft programs. 

Business challenges

  • The great success of the Retroconf configuration and its convincing underlying principles generated interest from other larger departments within Airbus such as Airbus Engineering. 
  • In 2011, the Retroconf configurator was significantly extended to fit their specific and challenging requirements. 

Results

  • The configurator can generate and evaluate specific Boolean conditions (so called Mixability conditions) that are used by engineers to check the validity and possible sources of problems within their design. 
  • In 2012, our configurator solution successfully finished its pilot phase and entered into productive service with more than 40 engineers and hundreds of testers using the application.
  • The new and highly complex programmes such as the A350 and the A380 are of particular interest. And legacy programmes are due to follow in 2012/2013. 

Scope of our solution

  • Project scoping
  • Requirements analysis
  • Specifications
  • Implementation of an industrial configuration solution
