INVOLVED IN OUTSOURCING Also, with remote based managed services, Internet conductivity is critical. The entire support structure relies on being able to maintain access to network nodes via the Internet. If conductivity fails, then the necessary maintenance and support cannot be delivered. If you rely on an outside contractor who generally has to come onsite to support your network, then you live in a world where you simply hope critical services don’t go down at a time when your ability to conduct business will be interrupted. Busy IT contractors may take days before they can come in to help, and this will likely be unacceptable if the problem is making it impossible for your staff to work. All the money saved by using a pay-as-you-go contractor can be lost with one serious issue within your network.
HOW SUCCESSFUL OUTSOURCING CLIENTS DEFINE SUCCESS IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP: Achieving the projected cost reduction Delivering best in class services Achieving the SLAs and KPIs Achieving initial process improvements Achieving Successful implementation Achieving increased business agility Increasing innovation Working together seamlessly despite ongoing change Achieving approved customer satisfaction

DESCRIPTION OF THE CASE Boeing manufactured 787 as one of its biggest achievements. It faced a lot of difficulties in its manufacturing. 787 revolutionized the way it manufactures. It went into partnerships with a number of contractors to help them financing it 10 billion dollar project. In an article issued by the AINonline shows that both Boeing and airbus incorporate outsourcing lessons learned by their counterparts. The relationship between the international association of machinist and the society of professional engineering employees in aerospace improved the negotiation process. The two bodies have warned Boeing to control its outsourcing activities as it is curtailing the recruitments of new aerospace engineers.
CAUSES FOR FAILURE Boeing faced a lot of supplier problems. Because of a number of suppliers they were not able to manage properly. Overrunning of cost.
