"Imagine trying to have 2 million components at the right place and time for one aircraft. We even had dedicated expediting staff in each department at each facility for chasing parts down. In just six months, we had a 96% reduction in material shortages. For us, materials are now an asset and not an obstacle. After our materials problems were solved, producing the Citation X, the world's fastest business jet, soared to new heights."
-Matt Kraft, Director of Continuous Improvement of Cessna Aircraft
