Driving Engineering Quality into the Foundation of Business

The Boeing Commercial Airplanes (BCA) Engineering unit has tasked the Tauber team with assisting in decreasing defects within the manufacturing process, in part by ensuring the appropriate measures are being used as key performance indicators. These defects cause delays down the manufacturing line and result in timely and costly reactionary maneuvers. The ability to locate, eliminate, and prevent these defects and their root causes is integral for improving Boeing’s first pass quality and overall customer satisfaction.
