CLAREMONT, CALIFORNIA – April 29, 2024 –  Lisa Anderson, MBA, CSCP, CLTD, President of LMA Consulting Group Inc., addresses the significant challenges posed by recent quality issues at Boeing and their widespread effects on the aerospace and related supply chains. Drawing from her in-depth industry experience, Ms. Anderson offers vital strategies for companies to navigate these disruptions effectively.

“With Boeing grappling with a series of quality issues, the ripple effects across the supply chain are profound and widespread,” states Ms. Anderson. “These issues have forced a slowdown in production and have had a cascading impact on suppliers and related industries.”

In response to these quality challenges, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has set production caps on Boeing, limiting its narrowbody output and complicating the operational landscape for suppliers who must now deal with excess inventory and uncertain schedules. “The aerospace industry, heavily reliant on Boeing’s output, finds itself needing to adapt quickly to these new production realities,” Anderson adds.

To address these challenges, Anderson advises companies to enhance their operational flexibility and strategic planning. “Companies need to implement robust process disciplines, focusing on quality assurance and manufacturing best practices. It’s essential to develop a positive, proactive customer experience and make solid use of ERP systems and advanced technologies,” she recommends.

LMA Consulting continues to lead the way in navigating supply chain complexities by offering strategic insights and practical tools. The firm’s Supply Chain Profitability Assessment tool is particularly valuable. It enables organizations to critically evaluate and enhance their supply chain operations, thereby fostering agility and foresight.

Ms. Anderson also emphasizes the importance of strategic inventory management. “LMA Consulting specializes in guiding businesses through turbulent times, employing strategic formulations and comprehensive supply chain transformations to build resilience and drive growth,” Anderson concludes.
