baggage handling systems by 1994. United realized there were severe operation issues for baggage handling that were not being properly addressed by DIA’s project management team (PMT); and therefore contracted BAE for their own system. While BAE was already working on United’s system, the PMT recognized the need to fully integrate baggage-handling for DIA area-wide. Since no other airlines emerged with plans to develop independent systems, the PMT produced concept plans for an airport-wide baggage handling system and sent out request for bids to several different companies. Initially BAE declined to bid on the project due to one main reason - the technology required for such a complex system should be determined earlier in the project life cycle. BAE had the technology that was needed (i.e., destination-coded vehicles moving at high speed), but implementing this technology into such a complex and fast-tracked project would have required more resources than was allocated. Nonetheless, BAE presented the city of Denver with a proposal and since no other acceptable proposals or alternative designs were evident, BAE was offered the design-build contract. As a result, the project scope was riddled with technical, organizational, and project management risks without long-term perspective to ensure success. Problem Statement The problem associated with development of DIA’s modernization can be summarized as follows: poor strategic planning for adoption of complex automation
