With over 1400 suppliers, it is critical to maintain a robust supply chain supporting aircraft production. In this collaboration, MBA students will use supplier data including delivery performance, quality performance, financial stability, capacity, criticality, location, spend, and other factors to stratify the supply base into risk categories. This project will include improvements to the data analysis, recommended improvements, and recommendation on supplier risk categories for mitigation.
