Productivity drives decision-making

Jim McNerney, chairman, president and chief executive of Boeing announced last week that the company will decide this year whether to add new engines to the existing design for the 737, which could be ready for customers by mid-decade, or to design an all-new plane ... which would not be ready till much later.

The decision will be taken on productivity grounds .. .what are the relative productivity improvements offered by the alternative strategies.
