System Engineering and Strategic Program Management for the Aviation Industry C1631

Topics: Quality, Safety & Maintenance

This course is offered in China only and presented in Mandarin Chinese. The course materials are bilingual (English and Chinese).

The course directly addresses improved aircraft system design tools and processes, which, when implemented will significantly contribute to simpler, lower cost and even safer airplanes that meet customer quality demands. Adding value to the high-leveraged area of design (reducing design by involving manufacturing) — which is what this course does — can start to reverse the current trend (overrun and long delay) and help aircraft companies be more profitable.
