Introduction

Management Planning David J Knox MGT/330 April 10, 2010 Matthew Handlon Management Planning Management planning is essential for a company like Boeing due to its massive and complicated structure. Boeing operates on global levels and provides products of all kinds to customers around the world. They manufacture high end aircraft for commercial and military organizations. These products manufactured primarily carry passengers, cargo, and execute military operations of the highest importance. The purpose of these aircrafts is sternly regulated due to performance concerns and safety. Within the United States, Boeing is regulated by the FAA, or Federal Aviation Administration. In order to operate an efficient business Boeing is required to conduct extensive planning.

Tactical planning's used in each department within Boeing, by making plans the company's able to manage all departments to their maximum efficiency level. In example, the manufacturing department can formulate specific plans that will be used to create stations for assembly within the plants. This can allow most workers to assemble aircrafts in the fastest, most efficient method possible. Operational planning's similar to tactical planning; the difference is that Operational planning deals with low level managers within the company. These low level managers ensure tasks are being executed properly by non manager employees. These managers also take charge of quality control for the all the physical operation the business has to offer. Every function that has been addressed combines and contributes to a solid plan for management. Planning's an extremely important function within Boeing and will contribute to its success in the future operations. ...read more.
