This paper examines the Year 2000 (Y2K) problem and how consumers and various industries will be affected, the costs involved, possible scenarios in the event anything goes wrong, and finally what is being done to correct the problem. Y2K is a complex problem, one with no immediate or quick solutions. The diverse nature of computer systems makes compliance testing difficult and increases the likelihood that the time and date anomalies will occur. This paper addresses the issues and concerns of consumers and organizations in the airlines industry. The objective is to present an introduction to the Y2K problem and provide a methodology toward solution and compliance by December 31, 1999. The real world case of the CSS HRizon information systems is presented as a target for for compliance.
