The Chicago-based company earlier said it was delaying the first test flight and delivery of its highly anticipated 787 jetliner due to production problems and a recent strike.
The company says its commercial airplanes supplier management, fabrication, propulsion systems and manufacturing and quality
organizations are now part of a new organization called supply
chain management and operations.
The new organization will be led by 53-year-old Ray Conner, most recently vice president of sales for Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
