Executive summary

Airbus: An aircraft parts manufacturer

Airbus manufactures and assembles aircraft parts at seventeen sites in Germany, the UK, Spain and France and the sites had long used disparate capital asset and facility management processes, standards, and tools.

Challenge

Combating disparate processes

The company needed its facility management and real estate (FMRE) team at Airbus to simplify space, cost, and energy-usage tracking across 17 sites in four European countries.

Solution

Deploying software to consolidate applications

Working with IBM and IBM Business Partner Computerized Facility Integration, LLC (CFI), Airbus deployed scalable transnational processes and an enterprise-wide facility management information system built on IBM TRIRIGA software.

Results

Improving operations through consolidation

With IBM TRIRIGA software and FMRE processes now harmonized across all sites, Airbus can consolidate FMRE applications by up to 45 percent, simplifying, improving, and accelerating decision-making.
