Introduction

With over 13,500 airplanes tied up in backlog, Maine Pointe’s aviation, aerospace & defense leaders, David Grasso (EVP) and Chris Brumitt (VP), outline how cross-functional supply chain collaboration is the key to unlocking trillions of dollars of revenue tied up in production. As the saying goes, “every rose has its thorn”. With the market so buoyant for new aircraft what, if any, “thorn” should executives be prepared to deal with?

With new aircraft orders and deliveries in 2017 hitting new records, the global backlog of airplanes is at an all-time high. Boeing, for instance, recently booked orders for 912 commercial airplanes. This pushed their backlog at the end of 2017 to a record high of 5,864. Meanwhile, Airbus secured 1,109 net orders from 44 customers in 2017. This resulted in an overall backlog of 7,265 aircraft valued at US$1.059 trillion at list prices.
