Investigations reveal disasters at the Boeing plant



Led investigations into defects that caused two incidents the Boeing 737 Max to investigate the manufacturing operations of one of Boeing's modern icons, the Dreamliner 787, the most advanced aircraft in the world, according to an investigation conducted by the New York Times

The investigation came after a complaint by current and former workers and managers at the Boeing Dreamliner factory, which the company set up in 2009 near Charleston, South Carolina, USA.

The newspaper's investigation included reviews of hundreds of internal emails, company documents, federal records and interviews with dozens of current and former workers in the factory

All these investigations reveal a certain "culture" that has dominated the modern Boeing factory, which is based on speed in production at the expense of quality and quality

Among the findings of the investigation, to compensate for the delay in production at that plant, Boeing took its workers to accelerate the production of Dreamliner aircraft, while ignoring issues and problems raised by workers in the factory

Accelerate production and safety gaps

Among the complaints raised by workers at Dreamliner, the company's most sophisticated factory, the hectic pace of production reflects wider and wider concerns about the company, especially in the aftermath of the Boeing 737 Max crash, the Indonesian plane crash and the Ethiopian Airlines

Boeing now faces doubts about whether to accelerate the manufacture and delivery of the Max aircraft to win the race with its European competitor, Airbus, has led to the loss of design safety issues, such as the aircraft maneuvering system, which played a key role in both incidents



The "safety holes" at the company's North Charleston plant called on airlines and other regulators to verify the new Boeing models. Some companies said the aircraft manufactured from the factory were not accepted after manufacturing errors and delayed delivery of shipments

According to the documents obtained by the American newspaper, workers have submitted about 12 complaints to federal regulators regarding safety, describing issues as "manufacturing defects", maintaining manufacturing waste on aircraft, and pressure on workers not to report violations

Some sued Boeing, saying they had been retaliated by the company for manufacturing errors

Joseph Clayton, who works at the North Charleston plant, one of Dreamliner's manufacturing facilities, said he always found dangerous residues and debris near the wires under the cockpit

Clayton said he told his wife he would never ride such planes, adding that the issue was safety

In an industry where safety is of paramount importance, collective concerns about the two air disasters are indicative of possible systemic problems

Regulators and legislators have taken a deeper and deeper look at Boeing's priorities, and whether earnings sometimes overwhelm safety, according to The New York Times

The Boeing leadership, one of the largest US export companies, finds itself in a position it has not previously committed, which has to defend its practices and motivations

 Worker errors and manufacturing errors

Kevin McAllister, Head of Commercial Aircraft, Boeing, said: "The employees at the South Carolina plant offer the highest quality in our history. I am proud of our exceptional team committed to quality and stand behind the work they do every day.

Manufacturing errors are something that all factories are dealing with, and there is no evidence that the problems at the company's plant in South Carolina have led to any major safety incidents, nor has any Dreamliner crashed, The battery is burning in a number of aircraft, and different airlines and airlines trust this model



But workers are making some serious mistakes, according to statements by current and former Boeing employees who refused to be named for fear of retaliation

Many complaints about manufacturing Boeing aircraft include the installation of parts with manufacturing defects, leaving tools, parts and metal residues inside the aircraft, often near their electrical systems

The aircraft even carried out experimental tests with debris, and debris in the engines and in the tail area, warning of the failure of the aircraft experience
