Section C, Group 7 Introduction Boeing, one among the three major commercial airplane manufacturing companies, started manufacturing of the new commercial airplane, the Boeing 767. This plane had been designed with the three-person cockpit. Boeing was lobbying Federal Aviation Administration for permission to build wide body aircrafts with two rather than three person cockpits. But, when the permission was granted, 30 of these planes were already in various stages of the manufacturing process. Problem These planes need to be converted into models with two-person cockpits. Options Available 1. Changes to be made inline, inserting new cockpits into the 30 planes without moving them from the flow of production 2. Changes to be made offline, by building the 30 planes with three-person cockpits as originally planned and then retrofitting them with two-person cockpits in a separate rework area.
