Boeing 787

Project Description • More than 1000 companies involved with the Dreamliner production and development. • Require the labor of 800 to 1.000 each. . • Assembly plant is expected to cost $1 billion.200 at an average salary of $65.

Problem Statement • Increase in air fuel prices • Continuous travel up to long distance • Comfort space for all passengers .

.Mission Justification • Dreamliner made a positive contribution to the health of Boeing’s core business • Open new frontiers for Boeing – Not another aircraft like Boeing 787. • Airbus considered now as an older model and not able to offer fuel savings.

Risk to Project • The size of the project • The context within which the aircraft will be manufactured • Use of new technology • Inaccurate estimates in the schedule • Communication failures. .

• Each and every supplier needs to provide frequent updates on their progress. • There will be times that weekly or semiweekly progress reports will be satisfactory.Precautions • Establish a person or a team responsible for coordinating all communication. there will be more times when daily communication between the team and each suppler will be essential. .

Milestones • • • • • 2003 – Authority to offer 2004 – Program Launch 2005/ 2006 – Firm Configuration 2007 – First Flight 2008 – Certification and Delivery .

Consumer Benefits • • • • • • Lower fuel consumption Lower carbon dioxide emissions More cabin space Vastly bigger windows Quieter engine design Noise reduction .
