The Continuity Project at A^3 by Airbus had key integrations across all modules to create a common user experience. Different modules were created using different technologies; were leveraging existing technologies and user experience; and using different frameworks and different outside vendors. However, the goal was to make sure the whole application felt like one user experience and one product. The Blockchain module would use the same sign in pattern as the Manufacturing module.
The Continuity environment was a fast paced environment and team. It was one of the more complex projects I have worked on. I had to get up to speed quickly and understand concepts around airplane manufacturing and engineering workflow. When I came in, I set up a visual style and design system using Bootstrap; I created visual stencils by using Sketch; I created a style guide using Frontify; and we created rapid prototypes using Sketch and Invisionapp. Our focus was on proof of concept and to show and demonstrate proof of concept and integration of new and old technologies.
The Continuity team was a small team of contractors and Airbus employees. It contained about 10 people and we all reported into a Project Executive. I worked primarily with the Full Stack Engineers and the Workstream Leads.
The sign in platform was a key point for integration across all the modules for Continuity.

Users had to use a registration form to request and provision a new account. Users could be both internal Airbus employees and external vendor partners.
Upon logging in the user would see a dashboard that would show launch points for modules the user had access to, show notifications and show tasks assigned to the user. The user could also change their settings and preferences.
