Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the project plan of Boeing company about light weight aircraft with high technology. The project of this aircraft has facing several problems such as software problem that led to engine shutting down automatically, lithium ion battery that causes fire inside the aircraft and others problem that led delay in the production.
The Boeing 787 has 3 different categories which are 787-3 that has been designed to fit in 250 passengers, 2 class, short range body and with range of 2,500 to 3,050 nautical miles (4,650 to 5,650 km) because the aircraft have les market therefore it only popular in Japanese market because it adapts to local customer’s demand, 787-8 with 242 passengers seat and can fly for 13,621 km.…
System Safety in the Dreamliner: Containing Battery Fires
Designing a long-haul, twin-engine airliner that impressed both operator and passenger was the goal of Boeing when they launched the 7E7 program in 2003. Sweptback wings, higher-humidity in cabins, composite fuselage, ultra-high thrust engines and a simulated sky interior were just a few improvements since air transportation of an earlier generation (“Boeing 787 Dreamliner long-range,” n.d.). The aircraft plagued by launch delays,…
it would take this channel strategy overseas, selling computers through China’s largest electronics retailer.” (Chopra) In the early 1990s Dell products were available for purchase at stores like “Best Buy, Costco, and other retailers, but the company stopped this distribution in 1994 due to low profit margins.” Dell even opened a store in Dallas where customers could encounter with their computers or other products. However, the Dell’s eventually had to be ordered online rather than taken them…
a profit and grow the company they have to have one of the previous mentioned factors or both. Although sales are something Boeing or any aircraft manufacturer cannot influence directly, they can certainly help by increasing their margin or by reducing costs (investopedia.com, 2012). Also, by streamlining the planning process and providing real-time crew management decisions helps in direct reduction in airlines operating costs which is a main factor when holding an advantage over the…
In addition to all these recent successes, Sikorsky and Boeing have also been chosen to work hand in hand in order to produce the SB>1 Defiant, which is a “medium-lift-sized demonstrator.” The demonstrator is built for Future Vertical Lift and is expected to fly in 2017, as advanced by Sikorsky in a press release.
It is probably safe to say that during its 90 years of existence, Sikorsky is now stronger than ever. The rumors about the company’s divestiture have calmed down…
Boeing is one of the dominant businesses in the large commercial airlines (LCA). It has travelled a long journey to reach this position. During this long journey, it has exploited various opportunities and strengths and has overcome weakness and threats to reach this position. The assessment of Boeing's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats and how these elements were perceived within the time scale of the case study between 2002 and 2006 are explained in this case…
The Company is improving its production rate in its main aircrafts which are the 787, the 737, and the 767. It has long term plans which most likely maintain the Company as the market leader for the next years.
I believe that commercial aviation will keep growing because of the high passenger travel demand and an accelerated equipment replacement cycle. And the Company will definitely play a key role in fulfilling these demands. The CEO of the Company has talked about the ambitions for the…
The amount of assembly required in the assembly plant depends on the manufacturer. At Boeings manufacturing plant in South Carolina, they build the aircraft sections in different buildings, moving each section to the final assembly building to put all major assemblies together. For Airbus, “Sections of the aircraft have been manufactured in the UK, Germany, Spain and France before being transported to Toulouse for assembly”. ("First supersize Airbus assembled," 2004) The final assembly…
Boeing is the largest company and producer of airplanes. Years back, they introduced a design for the all new Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The super airliner was designed to be on the same central network for all things, including passenger connectivity. The Federal Aviation Administration had never seen anything like the Dreamliner and didn’t know how to address the problem of figuring out the safety concerns and the legality of the new plane.
There are benefits and risks of using a common network…
