Michael Schoellhorn is Airbus COO and explains the challenges he is facing after moving over from Bosch. He describes an industry quite different between what he has seen before and what he sees now.
Airbus faces a far greater level of customization for example. Consequently, people have to remain at the center of the business as there are limits to digitization. He also spends some time explaining what Airbus expects with changes to come in certifications.
Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
