Airbus standardizes on Adobe Acrobat 7

July 06, 2005


Adobe recently announced that the Toulouse, France-based Airbus has elected to standardize it's worldwide operations on Adobe Acrobat 7. 32,000 seats of Acrobat -- spanning both Standard and Professional flavors -- will be rolled out over the rest of the year to streamline the international aircraft manufacturer's document generation, collaboration, security and archival processes.

"With employees located around the world using numerous software applications and file formats to complete projects, Airbus needed to maximize the efficiency of its document-based processes by standardizing on a solution that met the specific, demanding needs of its operations," said Adobe of the deal. "Acrobat 7.0 and Adobe PDF will enable Airbus teams to share and collaborate on documents created from virtually any application, including specialized computer-aided design (CAD) software."

Using Acrobat 7.0 Professional, engineers will be able to consolidate 2-D or 3-D CAD drawings from the company's PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) system, along with spreadsheets, technical diagrams and images, into a single Adobe PDF document. Once appropriate security measures are applied, the file can then be passed on for review and approval to users of Acrobat or the free Adobe Reader product.
