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 of relying on a global supply chain of vendors and suppliers in order to reduce costs and maintain aerospace superiority. By collecting data from Boeing Company reports, academic studies, and industry business sources, this paper will attempt to show the reader the merits and disadvantages experienced by Boeing by relying on the outsourcing of a majority of the aircraft. The researcher will utilize a quantitative methodology by applying the grounded theory approach of data collection.

The model explicitly assumes that operational efficiency is the only form of differentiation advantage available to Airbus and Boeing, but there are others. For example, we might expect the design of the passenger cabin, etc. would be important to Airbus' and Boeing's customers, the airlines.

The only way to stop the rise of failures would be for the FAA or some other flight education program to put out a course for perspective home built plane operators. This will greatly reduce the amounts of wrecks and fatalities and might even one day make flying home built as safe as flying a general aviation aircraft.

Why is that important company getting what they want? Between the years 2013- and 2014 Boeing Corporation, which know for building jets, had important agenda ahead of themselves. This company was pushing lobbyist around in order to get what they wanted. By pushing lobbyist, to tell member of congress to give Boeing company a break in taxes. This break is not an ordinary break, but mostly one that was one side deal for the Boeing Corporation.
Bakos (1991) defined the electronic marketplace as an “inter-organizational information system that allows participating buyers and sellers to exchange information about prices and products offerings” (p. 296). Airbus is teaming up with OneWeb to produce several small satellites to develop innovative designs and processes that aims to deliver affordable internet access across the globe. OneWeb’s objective is to transform space and connect the world. The space sector is indicative of the changing face of the aeronautical industry, with a growing number of non-traditional players transforming the landscape and the Airbus Group is at the forefront of this transformation. This will in turn dramatically lower the cost in large volumes for high performance space applications.
Ownership of airports takes place in many different forms. It could be through management articulating new investment programs such as selling of assets; management contracts; and private and public partnership agreements. Objectives of airport privatization includes modernization of both land and air-side facilities of the airline, minimize public or rather government interruption in airport management and operations, facilitate utilization of private capital and funding, building and financing airports, and or finally improving of service quality and efficiency (Vasigh, 2007).
