Boeing is turning corner with 777

Interesting glimpse into Boeing's “moving line” efforts. They were very successful in cutting cycle times on the 737 program, but not without some significant pain. This article claims the 777 moving line transition has been difficult so far. As someone who has never worked in A&D, it's amazing to me that the 777 has 3 MILLION parts and is being built on a moving line — managing the material flow must be as challenging as the actual production. Any comments?
