  • Unknown author (1999-01-31)
    In the 1980’s, many United States industrial organizations started developing new production processes to improve quality, reduce cost, and better respond to customer needs and the pressures of global competition. This new ...
  • Cutcher-Gershenfeld, Joel; Sleigh, Steve; Kochan, Thomas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001-05-09)
    Begin with a call to action. Present evidence on the dimensions of an employment crisis in the Aerospace Industry. Understand the links to issues of instability and lean. Focus dialogue on high leverage, mutual gains ...
  • Murman, Earll; Rebentisch, Eric; Walton, Myles (2000-09)
    Starting in the 1990s, the aerospace industry was challenged to produce products and systems Better, faster, Cheaper. In this paper, we examine some of the underlying reasons for BFC and offer some thoughts to help frame ...
  • Shields, Thomas J. (1996-12)
    LAI benchmarked representative part fabrications and some assembly operations within its member companies of the defense aircraft industry. This paper reports the results of this benchmarking effort. In addition, this ...
  • Stanke, Alexis (International Council of Aeronautical Sciences, 2002)
    Creation of lifecycle value - a balance of performance with cost and other attributes - represents a challenge for the development of aerospace products in the twenty-first century. This paper examines the concept of ...
