Abstract : The DLR-Institute for Flight Guidance had developed a new Arrival Traffic Management System called COMPAS (Computer Oriented Metering Planning Advisory System). The system has been implemented at the Frankfurt Regional Air Traffic Control Center in mid 1989 and is in continuous operation since then. A comprehensive implementation plan was developed in order to guarantee a smooth introduction in particular with respect to both technical issues and controller acceptance. The experience gained and the lessons learned during the implementation process as well as the operational results will be reported.
