Boeing Commercial Airplanes produces four twin-aisle airplane models at its Everett, Washington production facility---the largest building by volume in the world. Efficient and effective material handling of large airplane substructures is critical to maintain production rates, and the Everett facility employs two interconnected systems of overhead cranes(More)
A multi-year research project focused on a global aerospace company's design-to-production transition, and in particular how to answer production-related questions much earlier in a program's design cycle than is possible today. A fundamental difficulty is that the time and expertise required to formulate appropriate analysis models prevents their routine(More)
Trade studies are needed to evaluate different designs and manufacturing processes for a large-scale production system, such as building airplanes. The decision factors can usually be categorized into numeric and subjective decision factors. In this paper, we provide a decision analysis matrix by considering various numeric and subjective decision factors.(More)
