HAFSA RASHID, L1F13MBAM0199, Leading Innovation & Change, Sec: A Oct. 30, 2014 AEROSPACE INDUSTRY consists of manufacturing concerns that deal with vehicular flight in the atmosphere of earth and space. It deals with the human efforts to fly within and beyond earth’s atmosphere e.g. aeronautics and astronautics. are engaged in the designing, manufacturing, operating, maintaining, research and development of manned as well as unmanned/unpiloted/remotely piloted aerial vehicles or drone (that do not carry a human operator).Hi-tech improvement is the base for competitiveness and progress in the aerospace industry. As a result, this industry is world leader in science and technology.
Introduction to Boeing: An Airplane is an Aircraft that has wings and is powered by propellers or jets. The first time the world ever saw manned flights in the sky was in 1903 when the Wright brothers created an Airplane and flew in it. They achieved to gain an altitude of 12 feet and travel a distance of 120 feet. Ever since Aircrafts have been of great importance and there is a very high demand for them. Airplanes are put to many uses such, as they are a very important means of transportation for people and for goods, all the armies in the world use them as well.
This is a story for people who follow their hearts and make their own rules...people who get special pleasure out of doing something well, even if only for themselves...people who know there's more to this living than meets the eye: they’ll be right there with Jonathan, flying higher and faster than ever they dreamed. Jonathan Seagull, instead of fighting and screeching and diving like all the others, spends his time practicing to fly. He doesn't understand the practicality of such monotonous day-to-day activities. Rather, he attempts to perfect his flying abilities. Eventually he becomes the first gull to reach terminal velocity at 214 m.p.h.
Every day, they are responsible for safe and fast traveling around the world. The job of a pilot is known to be one of the most prestigious and well-paid professions that one can have. Although many people consider a pilot's job to be a "dream job" it comes with a lot of responsibilities and risks. When someone chooses to fly he/she puts his/her life in the hands of a pilot. A pilot’s job is definitely not an everyday routine work.
The companies motto is “We fly people, not just planes”. They are proud of their history and their reputation so they want to ensure that their employees are the same. For the purpose of this report we are looking at the two main issues of (1) recruitment and selection and (2) motivation. (1) Recruitment and Selection Recruitment and selection decisions are arguably the most important of decisions that managers have to make. The methods for recruitment and selection in organisations have evolved vastly over a period of

Finn Lau Yong Huan D16125478 Mechanization & it Malcontents The object I have chosen for design classic is an Aircraft manufacture by America Boeing Commercial Airplane Company – Boeing 787 by 1969. There are many first ever design used in this aircraft. This most recognize aircraft ever in the history also got a nickname call “The Jumbo Jet” or “Queen of the sky”. However, this aircraft was the longest airliner in the world for 747-8 version as well as one of the most recognizable aircraft in the world. Other than that, this plane was also designed for both passengers and cargo use.
Statement of Problem Airbus Industries is looking to introduce a new airplane that would compete in the “Very Large Aircraft” (VLA) segment of the market as a “super jumbo jet.” We will evaluate the viability of this project and make a recommendation to Airbus on whether or not they should pursue the project. Our recommendation will be based on NPV and IRR calculations. Relevant Facts Airbus was founded in 1970 as a consortium and has established a strong reputation for innovative design and technology. The main competitor to Airbus is Boeing; another large player in the commercial plane manufacturing industry. Additionally, Boeing is currently the only firm operating in the VLA segment through their “Queen of the Air” aircraft, the 747-400.
With Airbus now an established competitor to Boeing, both companies use advanced technology to seek performance advantages in their products. Many of these improvements are about weight reduction and fuel efficiency. For example, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner is the first large airliner to use 50% composites for its construction. The Airbus A350 XWB features 53% composites. Provision of engine
Airbus also led the industry as a technology leader. With A310 launched in 1978 and then A320 in 1979, Airbus introduced various technical advancements from cockpit to man-machine interface. The A310 also marked the beginning of the ‘Airbus Family’ consisting a wide variety of light-weight and fuel efficient aircrafts designed to attract different customer segments. Soon Airbus came up with its popular Fly-By-Wire technology which enhanced the safety of its passengers and gave a huge boost to company’s aircraft sales. The long range A330/A340 were also launched soon giving a great competitive advantage to Airbus.
