The record-high sales and backlog that you and other commercial aircraft manufacturers currently enjoy are the envy of most other market sectors. You’re in the midst of a perfect storm ― strong demand from emerging markets, accelerated replacement of existing fleets, and lower oil prices ― that is expected to prevail for the foreseeable future.

Too much of a good thing?
Demand must be met by supply, and a nearly twofold increase in production within a very compressed timeframe is a tall order. Add competition from Russia and the Far East, outdated IT systems, commoditization, a slow and fragmented supply chain, and cost control issues, and the challenge may seem unsurmountable.

We’ve always done it like that.
It’s tempting to build on the business model that has brought you so far. When ingrained processes have remained intact for many years, change is difficult. But new challenges demand new solutions.
