Boeing is known for its commercial airplanes as well as aerospace craft and military defense aircraft. Technology has and will continue to be a major aspect in Boeing management planning. Management planning is affected by legal issues, ethics, and corporate social responsibility. Three factors that influence the company's strategic, tactical, operational and contingency planning are economic conditions, innovation, and competition. First, management will analyze the situation.
Quality is very important to Boeing not just the service or product provided but quality employees doing quality work. Boeing has to plan a process that allows quality production, improvement, and quality assurance. To the Boeing accountants company expenses or cost must meet their logical purposes and must not exceed profits to maintain financial stability. Planning includes timing which is an important aspect of life, and business is one aspect that is not exempt. Every aspect of planning has to deal with the issue of scheduling or schedules.
2. Structure- the problem of 1994 was the Airbus (their main rival-booked more orders). This shocked the management executives and began series changes that were implemented to overcome the bureaucratic structure, outdated technological systems, and unnecessary processes in a company that reportedly changed. 3. Systems-Boeing adopted the principles of creating more value for customers with fewer resources.
There is also not enough space for storing raw materials and finished goods, which of course means that production may be slow if not everything is accessible. The layout of the company makes the workflow difficult and so motion is wasted. This leads to a decrease in production. The employees are not being allowed to work at their fullest potential, (02) Secondly, long term Albatross Anchor must decide to upgrade their technological tools. In order to be more successful in their industry, they must have up-to-date equipment and technology.
On the other hand, why would Boeing develop in-house some of the software applications used in conjunction with its products? [list] While some applications are cross-industry, others are within an industry (vertical), meaning that they do provide a competitive advantage. While word-processing and accounting tools may be interchangeable, specialized software has the potential to offer massive benefits and advantages. Engineers’ software, for example, could well be worth the investment to develop in order to ensure a better quality of output in their products. Boeing
The five forces are competitive rivalry, threat of substitute products, and threat of new entrants, bargaining power of suppliers and bargaining power of buyers. 2.1 Threat of new entrants The threat of new entrants presents the possibility of new firm entering the industry, which increases the competition while reducing the airline revenue. There are a few factors influencing the threat of new entrants such as government regulations, product differentiation, capital requirements and lastly switching costs. There was a low barrier of entry in the airline industry when Airline Deregulation Act eliminated government control over fares and routes. This allows those new entrants who enter the airline industry to slash price to capture market share which increase in competition.
Such technological advancement placed a lot of financial burden on the operations of Jet Blue. The airline industry continues to feel the effect from the U.S economic slowdown and rise of crude oil/jet fuel prices, which have risen to record numbers with no predictable end in sight. The slow economic growth has compelled both business and individual travelers to cut back on travel expenditure thereby compelling airlines such as Jet Blue to initiate energy conservation measures, targeting specific markets and exploring the possibility of partnership with other airlines. Linked to the volatility of jet fuel prices is the increased in competition posed by new entrants to the airline industry. New entrants such as Virgin America are bracing the competition by offering lower fares to customers.
Moreover, the grueling battle between prolific companies to compete for customer attraction and in the end, loyalty, resulted to further segmentation of the airline industry. Apart from the established full-service airlines (i.e., Southwest Airlines), three other market positions budded. They are: budget airlines, limited-service airlines, and premium-service airlines. ENVIRNOMENTAL ANALYSIS Ecological factor consist of recycling, the level of pollution and attitudes to the environment. For the airline industry, pollution tends to be very important.
In making the strategic decisions of the Aero footwear company the forecast was made for the future years. This report is an analysis of the decisions taken and the degree of achieved success. Success can be measured by increase in company productivity and the market position held in comparison with the competitors. Since footwear is globally used, there is need for regular improvement of the product and the services offered so as to maintain business. This can only be achieved if the right decisions are made and actions taken as well.
Weaknesses Slow process of developing new products Too many regulations to meet One of Boeing’s major weaknesses is that the slow process of devolving new products, especially commercial airliners. The designing, developing, and manufacturing of airplanes are difficult because of the complexities of modern aviation. While the development is in progress, customers’ demands may change according to new needs of airline business. Additionally, Boeing’s products are heavily controlled by many regulations of the U.S., other nations, and non-government agencies. Even with same airplane frames, many airplanes have to be equipped with different avionics to meet the requirements of both Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
