Boeing: Supply Chain Problems

Critical skills have been lost in their supply chain. Retirements? Loss of expertise. Were those people appreciated. Did they have backups in training. Or were the backups trimmed in cost cutting moves.

This sounds like another management blunder. Failure to recognize the value of the supply chain and support depth in critical personnel.


Sticks in my mind Boeing’s supply chain issues became very much worse, when then CEO McNerney turned up outsoucing on the 78 to 11. Turned out many of the vendors were incompetent.
