CASE STUDY 5-2 Boeing 787 Dreamliner

The first Boeing 787 Dreamliner was delivered to Japan’s ANA in the third quarter of 2011, more than three years after the

initial planned delivery date. Its complicated, unique design (including a one-piece fuselage that eliminated the need for

1,500 aluminum sheets and 50,000 fasteners and reduced the resulting weight of the plane proportionally) promised both

a reduction in out-of-service maintenance time and a 20% increase in fuel economy, but problems with early testing of

the new design contributed to the giant project’s troubles. Even after those delays, the 787 was grounded in January 2013

because the main battery had problems of overheating and subsequently burning. The problems were finally reported solved

in December 2014.

Delivery of Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner project was delayed, in part, because of the company’s global supply chain network,

which was touted to reduce cost and development time. In reality, the network turned out to be a major cause for

problems. Boeing decided to change the rules of the way large passenger aircraft were developed through its Dreamliner

program; rather than simply relying on technological know-how, it decided to use collaboration as a competitive tool embedded

in a new global supply chain process.

With the Dreamliner project, Boeing not only attempted to create a new aircraft through the innovative design and

new material but also radically changed the production process. It built an incredibly complex supply chain involving

over 50 partners scattered in 103 locations all over the world. The goal was to reduce both the financial risks involved in a

$10 billion-plus project for designing and developing a new aircraft and the new product development cycle time. Boeing

tapped the expertise of various firms in different areas such as composite materials, aerodynamics, and IT infrastructure to

create a network in which partners’ skills complement each other. This changed the basis of competition to skill set rather

than the traditional basis of low cost. In addition, this was the first time Boeing had outsourced the production on the two

most critical parts of the plane-the wings and the fuselage.

The first sign of problems showed up just six months into the trial production. Engineers discovered unexpected bubbles

in the skin of the fuselage during baking of the composite material. This delayed the project a month. Boeing officials insisted

that they could make up the time and all things were under control. But next to fail was the test version of the nose

section. This time, a problem was found in the software programs, which were designed by various manufacturers. They

failed to communicate with each other, leading to a breakdown in the integrated supply chain. Then problems popped up in

the integration of electronics. The Dreamliner program entered the danger zone when Boeing declared that it was having

– trouble getting enough permanent titanium fasteners to hold together various parts of the aircraft. The global supply network

did not integrate well for Boeing and left it highly dependent on a few suppliers.

The battery problems involved lithium-ion batteries that could not recover from a situation involving a rare but serious

internal short circuit that would cause flames to spread from one cell to another. Lithium-ion batteries had not previously

been used in an airplane and had not been tested under an assumption of a short circuit.

This case clearly underscores the hazards in relying on an extensive supply chain, failing to expect the worst case with

critical new parts, and encountering information exchange problems that caused long delays and seriously compromised a

company’s ability to carry out business as planned. Creating a radically different process can mean encountering unexpected

problems. In some cases, it would put a company so far behind its competition that it was doomed to fail. However, in this

case, the major competitor to the Dreamliner, the Airbus 380 program, was also using a global supply chain model, and its

program was delayed by a couple of years. The result for Boeing was a much-anticipated plane with fuel economy and outstanding

design that made the wait worth it. However, because of compromises in design, the Dreamliner holds only up to

250 passengers, compared to the A380, which has a seating capacity

Watch video link provided below

The video makes the point that though nobody wants to think that they are a statistic, acting as if you are a statistic can help you make better decisions. That said, statisticians should never forget that the numbers they analyze correspond to real people, who have friends, relatives, and stories to tell.


For this week’s Discussion video, the speaker makes very good points about how people see themselves in regards to statistics, especially when the statistics make them look bad, cliche or gives them a bad outcome in a situation specific to them. People like to think of themselves as unique and above the crowd, we often have the mentality that ‘just because something happens to one person, doesn’t mean it will happen to me’, ‘or just because those people have that opinion, doesn’t mean I will have that opinion.’ I think religion can also play a part in it, when a higher power intervenes, statistics are no longer relevant, like miracles. Doctors don’t often think in those terms, but many miracle believing religious people do. People are individuals with unique characteristics, unique families, genetics, mindsets, and upbringings, so it’s easy when thinking about yourself to think that statistics wouldn’t apply to you because you are unique, but isn’t everyone? Isn’t that the point? It also may be hopeful thinking that statistics do not apply to you because that means your chances might be bad in certain situations, like getting robbed in certain neighborhoods, not graduating or going to college coming from certain backgrounds or class of society, medical situations. We like to think we can rise above the statistics, but can we? Would it be better to have the mindset that statistics are gathered, analyzed and shared to help us out throughout our individual unique lives, helping us make wise decisions or prepare us for what might be to come?

Why do you think statistics often has a bad name?

In my opinion statistics is more of a vote and a lot of the times individuals do not vote honestly because of the fact of what others may think about them or how they may feel towards a certain subject. Therefore in this certain circumstance the poll would not be a true value because of an individual allowing their voting to be persuaded by someone else thoughts and feelings. Statistics is normally collected through polls that normally relates to a scientific industry or social problem. Just as I stated earlier if someone feels strongly about a problem that is going on in your neighborhood and is going to vote one way on this poll and the conversation comes up between the two parties but you as an individual do not feel the same then it will likely cause conflict between the two parties and persuade your mindset to lean more on the side of the other person to choose their side to stay away from the conflict. In my opinion this is why statistics gets a bad name because it starts to be more of a system of numbers in the vote than the person having a voice of their own in the vote because of individuals not wanting to make other individuals in their community or town mad or angry with them.
