Business challenge: Ensuring supply chain compliance and conformance of all products and services purchased by Boeing.
Superior quality is key to Boeing's success
To ensure its ability to continue delivering some of the world's safest and most reliable aircraft, Boeing relies on thousands of suppliers around the world to produce top quality parts and supplies. Making sure that the quality of these parts and services meets exacting standards is key to maintaining the company's core business and reputation.
Tight integration ensures high standards
To optimize the work of this vital function, Boeing set itself an ambitious goal: integrate the nearly 20 Information Technology systems and business processes across the company's many subsidiaries as well as with its different suppliers across the globe. To do this effectively, the company needed a single, powerful enterprise application as its foundation.
Business analysis produces strong system
The AeroInfo project team closely reviewed the existing IT systems and worked with the company to determine the new requirements. The next step was to analyze the business needs and re-engineer the existing processes and workflows to match the new system requirements.
The result was Boeing's Integrated Supplier Information System (ISIS), built from the ground up using both domestic and offshore staffing. ISIS now interfaces with nearly 30 different nonconformance informational systems around the U.S. to ensure Boeing's quality standards are met.
Training crucial to program success
AeroInfo also developed and delivered the training required for thousands of employees and suppliers to use the new ISIS software tool. We also trained these same people how their revamped business processes, enabling them to do their jobs more effectively using a streamlined approach.
