Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC)
A major control systems supplier was in an urgent bind: they had a pressing deadline for a FADEC software update for a regional airplane certification. Complicating the situation, the systems supplier was constrained by test environment resources for system verification, software development and testing.
Flight Management System (FMS)

The contract involved preparing the Flight Management System for first flight integration with a U.S. military combat helicopter. Late into the project, the supplier determined their resources were insufficient to meet the technical, budget, and schedule requirements.
