In order to assure delivery of a flight training simulator while flight testing is incomplete and several months ahead of the delivery of its counterpart aircraft, new and unusual methodology must be applied. Such methodology, called positive interface management, has been developed and successfully applied to the DC-10 program by American Airlines. This paper is a case study of this application.
