Boeing this summer began totally revising the 767 line, moving assembly tools, adding moving line capability, and creating a new "exit" path out the rear of the building. Does anyone know what the current status is? I see the deliveries keep plugging along at 1 a month however I thought that was supposed to pick up when the move was completed.

FWIW, here was the plan as described in the media in March:

...With or without the $35 billion tanker contract, Boeing will ramp up production on its 767 as it shrinks the 767 footprint inside the Everett factory.

“If we don’t land the tanker, we’ve still got a few years to build out” (the remaining 57 commercial jet orders, said Greg Hopp, a manufacturing supervisor for the 767 wings.

Late this year, Boeing plans to increase the pace of production on its 767 commercial jet to three aircraft every two months. Workers build about one 767 each month today. By June 2011, they’ll double that rate and deliver two aircraft every 30 days...

If they're holding to the schedule, the "quicker" pace should be evident in the delivery statistics fairly soon.

Not much of a status, but they seem to be done with the new hangar doors, at least from the outside. I should leave the office and wander out to the assembly lines more often.
