Airbus FAL will be efficient

MOBILE, Ala. -- The Airbus A320 final assembly line will be so efficient that when it swings into production in 2015, one shift will be able to handle four planes per month by working five days a week with no night work or weekends. That's what Jennifer Ogle, human resources director, said Tuesday during the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce's Women’s Roundtable. An aircraft can be made, start to finish, including delivery to a customer, in two weeks, she said. The $600 million Airbus plant is being built at Brookley Aeroplex. It will eventually have about 1,000 employees. (Source:, 10/15/13)
