Previously, the Boeing 737MAX was the main force for the Boeing family to make money. According to Boeing's financial report, last year Boeing delivered a total of 256 737MAX models, which is the best model for Boeing. The 737MAX series produces 57 aircraft per month, generating more than $30 billion in revenue each year for Boeing, accounting for half of Boeing's commercial aircraft business.
Therefore, Boeing’s attack this time is unprecedented. Boeing is not facing a broken arm lifesaving, it is likely to be an amputation. It is not uncommon to know that it is a case of directly burying a company because of a security incident. Far from saying, because the problem of expired vaccines has been delisted, stopped production, filed for investigation, and Changchun Changsheng, a fine of 9.1 billion yuan, is a clear case of the remaining temperature.
Combined with the lessons of Boeing, it is necessary to revisit the cost of security. The cost of safety is all the expenses that the company pays in order to ensure a certain level of safety, as well as all losses caused by safety accidents. Among the two major costs, the former is controllable and the latter is uncontrollable. Security economics believes that although the driving of economic interests is the driving force of social development, it is also one of the important causes of accidents. Therefore, safety has both the function of gain and impairment.
The aircraft was once considered to be the safest vehicle. However, in recent years, we have seen air crashes from time to time. Instead, high-speed rail, including ordinary trains, have rarely occurred. This may not be the case for airlines and aircraft manufacturers, but it is a good fortune in the face of short-term gains, especially now, on a global scale, only in the industry pattern of Airbus and Boeing.
In the wake of the air crash, the US media has traced the source and found that the US Federal Aviation Administration has authorized Boeing to undertake the certification of the safety of its own passenger aircraft. The large-scale safety assessment of the 737MAX series is Boeing's own work, and in order to catch up with the progress, the engineers doubled. Submit the drawings at speed. In other words, this is to let Boeing monitor itself, and it is a matter of time.
