The systems integration of the 777 Airplane Information Management System (AIMS), both within the AIMS system and with the other systems on the airplane, represented the most complex system integration effort ever undertaken at Honeywell Air Transport Systems Division. The technological innovations in the AIMS design, coupled with an aggressive program schedule were major factors in the AIMS challenge. Honeywell and Boeing had to work closely together to complete the design and development of AIMS in a time frame that supported the 777 Early ETOPS goal. With teams from the two companies working as one unit, redundant activities were eliminated, technical and program problems were identified and solved rapidly, and schedule time was saved by both teams helping with tasks that were traditionally considered to be the other team's job
