Autonomous and Thriving
Attempting to get a broad view of the current trends in completing
aircraft interiors is akin to identifying individual droplets
before they form a stream. Strategies and approaches vary wildly.
Where some organizations are working to bring all aircraft interior
services under one roof, others are intentionally remaining
independent, relying heavily on sub-contractors. Still others are
managing with an amalgamation of the two models.
Without sacrificing flexibility, each method is designed to bring
order and effective control to difficult projects while encouraging
initiative. And while there is certainly room in the current market
for all management styles, the question arises: Will the often
narrowly-focused independent firms that support airframe
manufacturers and major modification centers survive the long run?
