Boeing Starts First Phase Of Moving 777 Assembly

Sat Mar 04, 2006 10:55 am

Time saving goals:

The net impact on the 777, according to internal company documents, will be to reduce the number of work-flow days — the total time spent assembling one jet — from the current 20 days to 16 days by the middle of next year, to 15 days a year later, then further out to just 12 days.

I was up at Everett yesterday checking out the new tour (which overlooks the 777 and 787 lines instead of the 747), but this piece was way off in the distance, so the planes you could see (a KLM 722ER/AF 773ER/EK 773ER) were all in the traditional jigs or in post-jig stages of assembly.
