Managing a business has many factors to it. Hiring the right employees and having the right tools to make your business successful will only help your business grow and develop. Adapting a training program will help the employee understand how the business works and sets job expectations at the beginning of employment. This way the employee has specific job training prior to being independent in their job role. The training program also needs to include continuous and advanced training due to job functions changing and additions to the job description By creating continuous and advanced training this will allow the business to evaluate their employees consistently instead of once a year and will help an employee grow with the company and advance into new roles in the company.
Paper on video “21st century jet” In this paper, I would like to discuss on the video, “21st century jet.” This video is about the launching and testing of the airplane by the Boeing company, 777.The 777 family is designed to fill the size gap between the 767 and 747.The head of the 777 project is Allen Millaley, who promised to do many things which are impossible, produced the plane which is more reliable than any other plane in the aviation history. The first large passenger jet designed completely by computer, the 777 is more complex and innovative than any other airliner ever built. The important thing in this project was, at the peak of the design effort, there were 238 teams using computing technology to design the 777.Design engineers and manufacturing engineers worked concurrently on the design of parts to decrease later change orders and to increase efficiency in building and installing those parts. Outside suppliers and airline customers also are represented on some teams. According to one of the supervisor of a team, the traditional way of bringing problem is testing and more testing.
When he was young, his most successful design was actually a large 4 engine plane that the military converted to use as a bomber during WWI, and it flew hundreds of successful combat missions. One of Igor’s helicopters, the R-4, was flown by American military forces during WWII and used for the first successful helicopter rescue to save pilots that had crashed behind enemy lines in Burma. In WWII, pilots flew helicopters on missions to gather military information and to rescue soldiers. The main buyers of helicopters today are the military and civilian rescue teams. During his lifetime, he received many medals and awards for aviation, including the U.S. Presidential Certificate of Merit, the Guggenheim Medal and Certificate, and the National Defense Award.
In 1952, Boeing bet the bank with its own money by investing 16 million of its own money in the development of the 387-80 also known as the “Dash 80” (Boeing 707, 2018). Boeing utilized this prototype for proof of concept and directly to develop the 707 and military KC-135. The 707 were later modified to the 720 where it could perform short to medium flight routes and replaced by the 727 and 737 (Boeing 707, 2018). The Boeing 727 became the first commercial jet to surpass 1,000 orders due to its versatility, which set the stage for the 737 to take the field (Boeing 727, 2018). Boeing placed the 727 through rigorous tests implemented the first auxiliary power unit, APU, to help curb the need for ground power which was non existent at primitive airports and would become very relevant and profit producing to foreign countries (Boeing 727, 2018).
b Several accredited universities are delivering EQ training in hopes of preparing their students for the workplace. Grossman (2000) states: A current trend in education is to teach students about how their emotional intelligence can have a positive or negative effect on their career. Many universities are now offering courses in interpersonal relationships and emotional intelligence in an attempt to prepare students to be leaders. Leaders cannot lead in isolation, and an educational delivery system that features team building and collaboration is growing by the numbers. (p. 48) Emotional intelligence skills are a crucial component for a successful career in business.
Boeing has had to change their business direction over the past 100 years in order to stay a top of the aircraft industry. To maintain a good successful business they must have used a system similar to this SWOT analysis to see where Boeing needed to be to capitalize the market. Before Boeing decided that outsourcing was the way to go, a group of Boeing peers got around a table and weighed out the pros and cons. In their business analysis they saw a way to change one of their weaknesses, in-house work overload, into a potential strength. Major business decisions like this are much easier to commit too, with the use of a SWOT analysis.
Nonetheless, Boeing announced an initial order of 25 planes which, as a result, caused their stock prices to increase 5.1%. In spite of an initial potential failure, Boeing’s demand for the 747 aircraft continued to stay strong with 47 planes delivered in 1999 and 74 more in their backlog. In competition with American aircraft companies, such as Boeing and McDonnell Douglas, Airbus was formed in 1970 as an association with “principal aerospace companies of Germany (Deutsche Aerospace …), France (Aerospatiale Matra), England (Britain’s Hawker Siddeley, later BAE Systems), and Spain (Construcciones Aeronauticas, CASA)” (pg 3). The company primarily focused on creating a highly competitive line of commercial aircrafts. Though, overtime, the partnership between the four countries became unmanageable and three of them formed a new company known as European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company (EADS).
In 1961, President John F. Kennedy stood before Congress and “asked for an additional $7 billion to $9 billion over the next five years for the space program” (John). The outcome was very impressive because on July 20th, 1969, the United States launched their first successful spacecraft onto the lunar surface, without any malfunctions or injuries. This was a success because the United States was now the one ahead in the space race, sending humans to trek the unknowns of the moon. Additionally, it gave led to new scientific methods to make weapons and an increase overall of the intelligence that gave way to new technology. There were mistakes that President Kennedy made as well.
The years past and 1939 came when WW2 began and more airplanes began to appear with a much improved design than the Wright Flyer and with a propeller all of these aircraft worked. These new aircraft were built by many companies like Lockheed, Fokker, Bell, Boeing and other fighting aircraft which also involved the Spitfire which was a very used plane by a lot of air forces during that war, this plane was manufactured by Submarine and designed by R.J. Mitchell. Was launched the 4th August 1938 and was its primary user was the Royal Air Force, and had a production time of 10 years where 20, 351 Spitfire`s were built. The fighters and fighter bombers planes were the most used and were just like the Spitfire, single engine planes which were very basic with just machine guns attached to the... ... middle of paper ... ...as an amazing wing-flex and it is a very high tech but pilots have said that this plane on take-off is much louder than normal planes, but it was supposed to be designed so it was more quiet than other planes. Qatar Airways which was the launching costumer said that if the planes keep showing problems they will cancel all orders they have made.
