Boeing and Airbus supply chain management; the Airplane production market is a duopoly conformed by these two companies. They provided a perspective of the process from each company. They also showed the general process for both companies consisting of 6 major steps: Design and Engineering, Production, Transportation of parts, Final assembly and test, Testing and certification, and Delivery to customer. Moreover, they recognized the difference between the companies.

We found the presentation very structured and professional. They did a good job explaining the different ways of production. Seeing the four centers of excellence of Airbus was impressive and the way they work by teams and projects sounds very logical. The explanation of outsourcing in prefabricated parts and transportation provided to the audience the perspective of globalized operations and the concept of final assembly. They made clear that assembly and test are interdependent and differentiated the process of each company (Boeing: moving assembly lines and Airbus: fixed Assembly line). They explained very well the importance of safety standards; they are very rigorous and there is no room for error. The flight test consists of 50,000 simulations tests and 2500 hours of flight. Additionally, they tested airplanes in extreme weather that includes high turbulence

Finally, a recommendation to this group is to make a deeper research of the time for each part the process. They said that the complete process took around a year. The comparison of the two companies was an entertaining way to explain the supply chain of this complex…...

Having been a member of the Armed forces for just over eleven years and working solely in my maintenance field I am fairly strong in my logistical skills. While I may not be as well versed as some of my brethren that work in the Supply Support Activities or depot warehouses, I still have a vast amount of knowledge and deal with logistics in my everyday duties. I constantly work with a variety of items being issued and received from warehouses to the unit, and then from the unit out to the shops that need the part for the work to be performed. Logistics within a combat organization is the single most important operation, without all operations come to a halt. Without the necessary supplies to sustain life and equipment there are no effective combat operations. ......

...decreasing in non-replenish resources. As we know, Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM) has shown up in the last few years. This ideology covers each stage in manufacturing in front to the last stage of lifecycle and from the product design to recycling activity. Besides that, Green Supply Chain Management can also be applied by other parties, such as government, industry, education and so on. After doing some research, we have found that Srivastara (2007) explained the Green Supply Chain Management actually relates to a wide-range of manufacture from product design to reprocesses or destroy. The principium is more likely to the lifecycle of the manufacturer goods while according to the Sean Gilbert (2001) said, the process of incorporating environmental criteria of concerns into organizational purchasing decision and long-term relationship with suppliers is actually act as a way of greening the supply chain (UK Essays, 2014).

Air Quality Management

...Air Quality Management Introduction: I am from Visakhapatnam. A few decades back it was considered to be the ideal getaway for people wanting to better their health. But now city has gained the dubious distinction of being one of the top 10 most polluted cities in the country. Swept away by the rapid development that hit the city's shores and catapulted it to the second fastest 'emerging city' in India, the City of Destiny is today staring at a very grimy future indeed. Already the fast clip of industrial growth in combination with the increasing number of vehicles on the road has turned the Port City into a polluted bowl filled to the brim with all kinds of pollutants. Reasons: Population has increased from a mere 1 lakh in 1940’s to 28 lakh lakh and the number of vehicles zooming from about 30,000 in the 1970s to over 5.5 lakh. Most of the major industries such as Visakhapatnam Port Trust (VPT), HPCL, Coromandel Fertiliser and Visakhapatnam Steel Plant spew noxious fumes and chemicals into the city. The residents iron ore dust pollution from Steel Plant, now have to contend with even more pollution thanks to coal and sulphur handling at the GCB. Respirable Suspended Particulate Matter (RSPM) in the air has exceeded well over the permissible limit of 60 microns per metre cube in some areas. Industrial growth took off in a haphazard manner.

Passengers in Air, Supply and Demand Analysis

...MODULE TITLE: Microeconomics, Introductory PROGRAMME: BA in BE TITLE OF ESSAY: Passengers in air, supply and demand analysis Air transportation is very valued type of transport by people, especially because it is time-saving, when you are travelling to countries, which are long-distance from each other, and mostly, it is the only way to get an access to geographically isolated areas. Moreover, air transportation enables the access to people, capital, markets, and resources. As, a result, the availability of air transportation services effectively increases in most of the countries. It has also an effect on economic activity. Different factors dominate the relationship between economic and air transportation. Because of these unique factors, the nature of air transportation flows differs among the economics. In this paper, I would like to analyze what are the main factors of demand and supply that have an impact on air transportation market in Eurozone area. Like any other business, the airline industry is impacted by changes in its external environment. Prices have a strong impact on demand of airline industry. As I can observe on the graph, the inflation for traveling by airplanes is falling down, while the prices of tickets are rising up, and when the prices of tickets are going down, the inflation is again starting to increase. There are several factors that have influence on price dynamics; political, legal, economical, social, and technological.......

...History. Air Asia was established in 1993 and the operations began in 1996. Air Asia had rather shaky start and the 1997-1998 financial crisis had futher worsen the situation for Air Asia to grow as a low cost carrier. During it dire stage, the company was taken over by Tune Air under the leadership of Dato Tony Fernandes with the help of Conor McCarthy, former Director of Group Operations, Ryanair. Based on Southwest Airlines and Ryanair’s business model, AirAsia offer “No frills” airlines with a catchy tagline of “Now Everybody Can Fly’’. Within 2 years Air Asia posted a net income of 18.8 million and broke the 100 million net income barriers in 2005. Since then nothing has stopped AirAsia from moving forward and setting milestones, notably the first Asian Airlines to go ticketless in 2002, first multi lingual Asian airlines website in 2003 and the world’s first airline to launch a mobile site. All these are aligned with Air Asia’s philosophy to make flying affordable, easy and convenient.

Supply Management

...Study #1 – Sunspot, Inc. 1. Strategic alliances among suppliers can be beneficial among companies that share the same vision. Some benefits of an alliance include lower total costs, reduced time to market, improved quality, improved technology and improved continuity of supply. In the case of Sunspot, Inc. the CEO, Ms. Monica Foltz can look to adopt and create strategic alliances with suppliers for parts to manufacture sunglasses. Overall, Ms. Foltz can hope to lower costs of sunglasses which may help to garner more market share and increase her customer base. She can also direct more of her attention on future development, new products, R&D and innovation because an alliance allows for a shared vision among the supply base and openness that is progressive towards current demand. 2. Disadvantages of alliances may include many factors. One such factor is in order to have an alliance, the firm must have executive level commitment. Without the commitment of top level executives alliances can be hard to get long term vision shared between alliances. Two firms need to pledge to cooperate for long term success and be open about cost, long term objectives, technology, and the overall supply chain. The relationship must be adaptable through changing economic struggles and advantages, environmental issues and competition. Another disadvantage of alliances may include the fact that they are resource intensive. On top of all of these factors, alliances take a......

...Dell’s Supply Chain Management Strategy Build-to-order model, Dell, Direct model, PC Manufacturing, SCM, Supply Chain Case Study Abstract The focus of this case study is the supply chain management practices of Dell. Dell has been following its unique ‘direct build-to-order’ sales model for more than 20 years. Customers can plan their own configuration and place orders directly with the company via the phone or its Web site. Over the years, Dell’s supply chain efficiencies and direct sales gave it a competitive advantage. Can Dell regain its market leader position from HP? In 2006 however, Dell faced several problems. Many customers complained about long delays in supplies. Recall of Sony battery cells in its laptops brought undesirable media hype to the company. Increasing discontent of customers led to a slowdown in sales. Consequently, Dell lost its market leadership to Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP). Industry analysts felt that, with Dell’s competitors also improving their supply chains and matching Dell’s direct model, the company had been losing its competitive edge. Dell will have to bear additional costs with its foray into retail distribution thereby minimizing its cost advantage. Besides, profit margins of Dell will drop further since it will have to offer incentives to compete with HP in retail stores. Though Dell spruced up its product design and range but Apple is clearly far ahead of it. Many experts feel that such new initiatives will only distract Dell from......

Air Transport Management

...AIR TRANSPORT MANAGEMENT AND OPERATIONS David Lambert Air Transport Management and Operations Contents Introduction - Page 3 Principles of Management – Page 4 Human Resource Management – Page 9 Safety and Security – Page 14 References – Page 18 Introduction All companies and organisations are interested in producing profits, increasing market share and growing the range of products and services that they provide. In order to achieve these goals effective management within the organisation is required. In a general terms management is comprised of ‘top management’, ‘middle management’ and ‘operating management’. However when organisations reach the size of today’s major carriers these definitions can become fully define and a larger framework is required. When the air transport industry was in its infancy management was a much simpler process with smaller teams and shorter communication paths between levels within the organisation. In recent years major carriers have come to employ tens of thousands of people reducing the importance and sense of contribution anyone employee has within the structure. Lines of communication have stretched between decision-making and the ground worker removing a sense of teamwork and a confusion of the ultimate goals of the airline. In the highly competitive world of air transport creating and maintaining an......

Air Asia Management Strategy

...Air Asia – Strategic IT Initiative Submitted by: Charles Kho Sandy Hofman Aruan Christian Tjitrahardja Ramaratnam Narayanaswamy Faculty of Economics and Commerce University of Melbourne 2005 306-669 Strategic Enterprise Systems Group Project Executive Summary IT is one of the major enablers of AirAsia’s successful low cost business model. Based on the environmental scanning performed, the demand for Low Cost Carrier (LCC) is expected to expand rapidly attracting more players to join the market thus increasing the degree of rivalry within the industry. In responding to this condition, it is imperative for AirAsia to continuously identify new sources of cost advantage so that it can provide the lowest possible price to the price sensitive customer and improve its market position. In this project, Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) system is recommended as the new source of AirAsia’s cost advantages. Using Venkatraman and Henderson’s model APS fits smoothly to the Technology Transformation Perspective where business strategy acts as a driver. The functionalities provided by APS system to improve AirAsia’s performance include event management technology, supplier portals, inventory planning, demand forecasting, maintenance management, and route profitability analysis. As a result of implementing APS system, AirAsia can obtain both strategic and operational benefits. AirAsia is strongly recommended to outsource the development of APS system. As project......
