Mid-Term Paper – Boeing Analysis MGMT 658 Abstract Unlike other manufacturing industries, aircraft manufacturing is considerably large and complicated. It is a field with high risk involvement. Losses incurred can be quite huge due to the size of the industry. Being the case, the aircraft manufacturing industry calls for intrinsic planning and comparatively larger pool of skilled and cooperative manpower for successful production. The Boeing 767 case study focusses on the manufacturing of Boeing 767, which contains 3.1 million pieces and 85 miles of wiring.
In February 2010, the department of Rehabilitation and Correction department employed approximately 13,400 personnel as correction officers and parole officers. The total staffing cost for 2010 amount to $936 million, representing 55% of the budget (Trout, 2011).

Earthquake engineering has become an important aspect of structural engineering, especially after the recent seismic incidents that took place in Chile, Mexico or New Zealand. These events shook the engineers from within and they are now expected to deliver stronger structure that can withstand such hazards. With latest tools and technology and of course BIM analysis methods, it will now be easier for engineers to design or build more earthquake resistant buildings. So what is seismic analysis and how can BIM analysis aid engineers for it? Calculating the response of a building structure during earthquake is what seismic analysis method is all about.
As in 2006 it has handled almost 30 million passengers.

In the highways team, I worked as a design engineer for various Middle East and UK projects, such as Doha West (DW) 68, 44, 02 etc and M62 J26 chain bar improvement scheme, A5036 Port of Liverpool under Hariprasad Namshamgiri, Senior Highways Engineer and AnilKumar Veernapu, Group Engineer at WS Atkins. Here, I was mostly involved in designing the horizontal and the vertical alignment. Working at WS Atkins also made me realize the limits of my knowledge achieved during my graduation. The challenges presented to me every day demanded a better and a profound understanding of the work. In order to hone my skills further, develop myself as a successful engineer of tomorrow and contribute towards the betterment of the world, a specialization in this field is a must.
My project advisor encouraged me to look at technical problems in multiple dimensions. He demonstrated and motivated me to improvise on basic knowledge and apply it to complex systems. I learned the value of judgment and realized how research and analysis can lead towards a solution. Working with an internationally reputed organization during my project gave me valuable insights into how a large organization operates and helped me learn nuances of professionalism and conducting myself in presence of executives and corporate meetings. This experience has also driven my career goal of becoming a successful engineering professional in the automotive
