Good article, thanks Cur...

What's interesting is that suppliers are also working with mixed versions of the software. So upgrading to V5 would mean not just the Airbus companies take a financial hit, all other tiers will have to follow suit as well. A very costly proposition.
We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.
