1/ Panel Discussion : “Strategic and critical issues of a global supply chain”- 2017

Panel discussion moderated by Thierry Dubois, France Bureau Chief, Aviation Week

Recent experience has shown that, while airframers are delivering on their planned ramp-up for major programs, a quality issue at a supplier can have a significant impact. A serious problem may emerge at Tier 1 but also Tier 2 or 3. What can OEMs do to ensure their supply chain performs as hoped? How do they ensure critical suppliers remain bust-proof? Representatives from major OEMS on both sides of the Atlantic -- speak out.
