AIM Altitude has been awarded Gold by Airbus as the Best Improver in its Cabin Awards, rewarding the company’s commitment to quality and delivery.
The Award was made to AIM Altitude at the Supply Chain and Quality Improvement Programme (SQIP) Day 2016, in Hamburg, prior to AIX. Thomas Moik, SVP Procurement Operations, and Nicole Dreyer-Langlet, VP Procurement Operations Cabin, at Airbus, presented the award to AIM Altitude’s team.
As Airbus’ best improver, AIM Altitude was then asked to present to the assembled audience, to share its best practice and excellent industrial performance.
Gary Howes, Senior Manager – Quality, at AIM Altitude, explains:
“When Airbus began SQIP in early 2014, AIM Altitude identified nine work streams in which to make enhancements. These covered all business processes from design, through internal and external supply chain, manufacturing and risk management, to quality and delivery. We have embraced the SQIP project and worked closely with our Airbus counterparts to make significant developments from the very start of the programme. The AIM Galleys business is pleased to report that, over the last 12 months, all platforms have been delivered to Airbus fully on time.”
For Airbus, the objective of the project was for cabin suppliers to secure the increase in production by the introduction of risk management and mitigation, improving quality and delivery performance, and reducing concessions.
