Leveraging Global Partners to Maximize Customer Value The new Boeing super-efficient jetliner is the 787 Dreamliner. Scheduled for delivery beginning in 2008, the Dreamliner provides passengers with a better flying experience and operators with a more efficient commercial jetliner. Because it uses 20 percent less fuel per passenger than similarly sized airplanes, the 787 is designed for the environment with lower emissions and quieter takeoffs and landings while traveling as fast as today’s fastest wide bodies, Mach .085.

In order to achieve this exceptional performance, Boeing established a core team of the world’s most capable aerospace companies to design key components of the airplane. As an example, Boeing partnered with General Electric and Rolls-Royce to develop engines for the new airplane and expects that advances in engine technology alone will contribute as much as 8 percent to the increased fuel efficiency of the new airplane.

Boeing has worked collaboratively with its partners to engineer the new Dreamliner, and has also adopted a completely new manufacturing model to produce the airplane. Boeing will leverage its extended supply chain and partner manufacturing resources as a competitive advantage to improve time-to-market and reduce total cost. For the first time in Boeing history, the majority of the airplane will be fabricated by global partners and will be delivered as major subassemblies which Boeing will assemble and test at its facility in Everett, Washington.
