Comments on: Learning from Boeing’s outsourcing disaster http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/02/18/learning-from-boeings-outsourcing-disaster/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: essay writer http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/02/18/learning-from-boeings-outsourcing-disaster/comment-page-1/#comment-54906 Mon, 13 Oct 2014 11:43:31 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=7381#comment-54906 I want to express some thanks to this writer for bailing me out of this trouble. Just after surfing throughout the world-wide-web and finding recommendations which are not pleasant, I was thinking my life was over. Existing without the presence of answers to the issues you’ve fixed by means of your good post is a critical case, and those that might have adversely damaged my entire career if I hadn’t noticed your web page. The talents and kindness in maneuvering all things was excellent. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not encountered such a point like this. I’m able to now look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot very much for your professional and amazing help. I will not be reluctant to propose your web blog to any individual who needs tips about this subject.

Boeing seems to not understand this difference.

Large aircraft are supplied in sections, and this is possible because each section is modular with highly specified interfaces. However, the design of the sections is not something that can be modularized. The design of each section is highly interdependent with the other parts of the aircraft. In fact, there may be no other product whose parts/sections are as highly interdependent than a large aircraft…a slight change in the center of gravity of one section can have large impacts on the other sections…a slight change in the surface geometry of one section can drastically change the airflow over other sections.

I even recall at one point a few years back that Boeing thought that disintegrating the design would actually shorten the development time…a deeper understanding of the development process would have acknowledged the increased time needed to design an integrated aircraft across companies, countries, cultures, and languages, whereas previously the aircraft and the production process were designed by internal teams.

The poor misunderstood geniuses running Boeing were unfairly handicapped because nobody told them that, incredibly, they aren’t Nike. Turns out that to manufacture airplanes, you actually need to have people working for you who know how to design and manufacture airplanes. Who could have foreseen this?

The great news for Boeing shareholders and employees is that management has proudly refused to learn anything from this debacle. Instead they are doubling down by moving as much as possible of their US operations to South Carolina, in order to ensure that even when they pay US wages that are higher than those in developing countries, they can make sure that they’re still paying them to people who don’t know how to build airplanes.

I knew nothing at all about Boeing or the airplane business before moving to Seattle to work in an unrelated industry, 17 years ago. But all you have to do is read the Seattle press to see what’s incredibly obvious about the company’s big decisions. Their mistakes are truly at the kindergarten level, and they all have the same cause. Management can’t see *anything* except the cost of making their product. In real life, things just ain’t that simple.

He said that relative to Airbus, Boing was built downright sloppy. And this was back in 2003, I suppose it didn’t get better since then.
