Core competencies - include composites design and manufacture, architecture, manufacturing engineering and supply chain management.
Competitive priorities and capabilities- maintaining innovation
Role of operations strategy in formulating business strategy – creating smarter skies and supplying airlines with their needs Company Introduction Airbus is the leading global manufacturer of the most innovative commercial and military aircraft, with Airbus Military covering tanker, transport and mission aircraft. Today, Airbus consistently captures about half of all commercial airliner orders.
Global strategies- To lead in technology innovation, currently they focus 90% of their research and development in reducing their environmental footprint.
Airbus is ISO 14001 Certirfied Conclusion/ Summary A capital intensive company such as Airbus, that involves billions of dollars in just research and developments costs, it is of crucial importance to meet the demands of clients with the most efficient possible to leave room for profits. Business Strategy Mission- meeting the needs of airlines and operators by producing the most modern and comprehensive aircraft family on the market, complemented by the highest standard of product support.
Goals- Higher production, safer airplanes, and reducing their production footprint
Vision- Smarter skies PORTER'S 5 FORCES High Low High Low Low Test Program & Certification Final Assembly and Test Delivering the Customer Transport of Major Aircraft Sections Production Design Offices and Engineering Centers Process of building an aircraft "The lowest fuel burn and the lowest cost per seat, yet the most comfortable and quiet cabin in the sky" Process Improvement intelligent innovation to new products resulting in its industry-leading performance in terms of eco-efficiency operations. less congestion
less noise Mass Customization In many businesses mass customization would be an efficient factor in the companies production capabilities but due to high customization of each plane (adding special features) the process slowed down the company as it delivered its newer model plane almost two years late and doubling their normal budget. Supply Chain Collaborating with the entire supply chain is vital to ensuring that each aircraft delivered meets the highest applicable environmental standards. The Airbus supply chain emphasizes on benefiting and complying with environmental requirements.
Quick Fact: "In the last 40 years, the aviation industry has cut fuel burn and CO2 emissions by70%, NOx emissions by 90% and noise by 75%." with that being said, Airbus uses this type of mindset to always comply and meet environmental standards. Customer Relationship Process "We are constantly improving according to our customers feedback to improve their experience" - Didier Lux VP Production Plan To ensure higher standards and production levels, Airbus has implemented a new production organization to manage all aspects of production and meet the growing demand. This organization was implemented in January 2013 and aims to accomplish all goals set out by Airbus by integration and team work. Relevant Constraints and Costs Constraints that Airbus faces are always changing and never set due to the ever evolving industry that it calls home. However Airbus is always looking to eliminate these constraints.
Fixed costs are another factor in the Airbus company due to their always evolving and high levels of customization. With that being said, Airbus is always going to have a set aside budget for renovations and newer technology as well as other minor expenses such as subsidies and regulation fees.
