“I found our study trip to the USA absolutely thrilling and from a practical supply chain know-how point of view, very relevant. The highlight of our trip was the time that we spent with the Boeing management at their production facility in Everett. WA. We were introduced to their 787 Dreamliner project and the management team was very open with us on the supply chain choices that they made and the subsequent challenges that they face in bring the 787 to market on-time and within budget. Over the 3 days we worked through a case study with Boeing on what they could have done differently to avoid the challenges that they face. I found the open dialog on supply chain design and monitoring to be profoundly useful. The tour of the production facility at Everett, WA was eye opening. To see different supply chain strategies at work for different Aircraft models, and these working harmoniously under one roof, was a lesson in the effective management of complexity.”
