Major Plane Buyer Sees Boeing, Airbus Supply Chain Risk

Bill Rigby writes for Reuters that Boeing and Airbus may be pushing the aerospace supply chain further than it can stand. The pressure is on for the two companies to produce new jets to fill the gap between twin-aisle aircraft and narrow-bodied planes, but committing to such a venture would create risk at the other end of the supply chain. Small manufacturers producing minor parts may not be able to keep up with demand, and when it comes to flying an airplane, even the smallest part is a vital part. Boeing and Airbus intend to produce 138 new jetliners a month by 2017. More transparency and excellent communication throughout the supply chain will be necessary to make this a reality.
