- Boeing (BA +0.8%) says its 787 manufacturing plant in South Carolina has reduced behind-schedule aircraft work by 72%, suggesting it is getting past problems that snarled production earlier this year.
- The company says the success puts aft, mid-body and final assembly operations in both Washington state and South Carolina into a better position for a smoother, more efficient, more stable production flow.
- Boeing aims to entirely eliminate "traveled work" - jobs moved to another work station or factory from where they are supposed to be done - but has not achieved that so far.
