rather than that of a manufacturer in the production of 787 Dreamliner. Boeing found itself underprepared to manage such a complex supply chain model. A number of issues like delays in production, poor quality control, improper coordination among suppliers, mismanagement of subcontractors, disgruntled employees and production related issues were rampant. All this resulted in rising costs, and huge delays in production of the 787 Dreamliner, which prompted the company to take up costly remedial
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner was first launched in Washington in 2007, by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Commissioned in 2003(Tang and Zimmerman, 2009), it was titled 7E7 prior to being renamed in 2005. Boasting of technological innovations such as increased fuel efficiency, and the use of composite materials in production, it became the 'fastest-selling wide-body airliner in [aviation] history'. It involved a unique supply chain arrangement entailing global collaboration between various tiered suppliers
low-cost countries in order to reduce cost and increase profits has, in some cases resulted in the opposite effect. This study will explore the Boeing Airplane Company’s attempt to utilize the outsourcing method for its new 787 Dreamliner program. A final evaluation or hypothesis will be formed based on the success and failures of the program. The growth of global outsourcing has created a new paradigm for management. Boeing’s 787 aircraft program will be focused to investigate and evaluate the effects
Delta Air Lines Airport & Airspace Capacity Case Study The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is one of the largest airports in the world and is the main hub for Delta Air Lines, one of the largest airlines in the world. This case study will examine the relationship between demand and capacity for the home hub of Delta Air Lines. Future predictions for air travel estimate enormous growth rates as high as 50% by the year 2025. Airlines, airports, and the entire air-travel infrastructure

The threat of forward
orders of such aircraft as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the Airbus A350 XWB. These predicted increases in demand have highlighted a situation where in the future, capacity will likely not be able to keep up with the demand and ATL will become deficient at maintaining throughput. In 2004 the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had already began a Future Airport Capacity Task (FACT) study which examined airport capacity across the country. The study was meant to capture key airports within
