Boeing: How much trouble is the company in?

Shortly after departing from Portland International Airport, a brand-new Boeing 737 Max was captured in flight. An early report from the National Transportation Safety Board of the United States came to the conclusion that four bolts that were supposed to be used to fasten the door to the aircraft in a safe manner had not been installed. There have been reports that Boeing is being subjected to a criminal investigation into the incident itself, in addition to legal action from passengers who were on board the plane. The following statement was made by Mr. Calhoun in response to those concerns: “We will go slow, we will not rush the system, and we will take our time to do it right.”

The United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced earlier this month that it had discovered “multiple instances where the companies failed to comply with manufacturing quality control requirements” during a six-week audit of the production process for the Boeing 737 Max at Spirit Aerosystems, which is Boeing’s supplier. An additional assessment of Boeing’s safety culture was conducted by an expert panel, and it found that there was a “disconnect” between senior management and normal personnel. Additionally, there were indications that staff members were reluctant to report problems out of fear of reprisal. The conclusions came shortly after the previous report.

Adam Dickson, a former senior management at Boeing who was involved in the 737 Max program at one point, is in agreement that there is a significant gap between executives and workers on the production floor. “The culture at Boeing has been toxic to trust for over a decade now,” according to his statement. It is possible to include safety measures and processes in your plan. Nevertheless, the basic problem of mistrust renders those adjustments nearly ineffectual, according to his assertions. In the meantime, additional evidence of how production issues could potentially put employee safety at risk emerged this week.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a warning that wiring bundles on 737 Max aircraft may become damaged if they were not fitted correctly. This could result in the controls on the wings being deployed suddenly, which would cause the airplane to begin rolling. This “could result in loss of control of the airplane” if it would not be rectified, according to the statement. Because of this, hundreds of aircraft that are already in operation will need to undergo inspections.

According to Boeing, the company is continuing “to implement immediate changes and develop a comprehensive action plan to strengthen safety and quality, and build the confidence of our customers and their passengers.” This statement was made in response to the federal aviation administration’s audit.
