I found out recently during research for the New Fraud, Same as the Old Fraud Page some startling information.
It seems the de-evolution and subversion of Boeing's quality system for ever more and more illegally gained bottom line cash continues apace by Boeing Management to this day. They don't even try to hide the subversion of their quality system via management changes to eliminate its independence and effectiveness in ensuring the quality and safety of Boeing airplanes anymore.
It's quite evident, even on public websites such as Linkedin.com. You would think that the Vice President of Quality at Boeing would be the most expert person in BCA about quality and quality requirements, with many years of rising through the quality organization management ranks, and even before management, having experience in quality from a line employee level and progressively upward during each promotion.
However, when you look at the resume of the current V.P. of Quality at Boeing, Lindsay Anderson, you will find the opposite is true. He had no experience in Quality before he became V.P. of Quality. You may be dumbfounded at this news, but it proves everything I experienced at Boeing and what you'll read throughout this site. At Boeing, Quality is only a shell organization, meant to give only the appearance that Boeing is meeting its quality and safety requirements, and nothing more. That is why they put someone who knows nothing about the importance and intricacies of a quality assurance program in that role.
But it's even worse than that. Mr. Anderson not only had no experience in Quality before he was made V.P. of it by corrupt Boeing Executive Management, he actually was in the one job at Boeing most adverse to quality by ensuring the most uninspected Boeing airplanes at Boeing delivered on time no matter what was threatening to hold their deliveries up.
Obviously, therefore, Mr. Anderson is equivalent to the Mr. Anderson from "The Matrix" movies that tries to corrupt the system from within by taking it over.
He was most recently Boeing V.P. of 737 Field Operations and Delivery.
737s are some of the the most quality compromised airplanes Boeing delivers. Only some work on 737s is partially inspected depending on which day of the week it is (sad but true--that is just some of what the corrupted FAA allows). It is far, far worse than other Boeing airplane programs where every installation is "pretend inspected," rather than just an "installation of the week" being pretend inspected.
In that role, he was the "enforcer" who visited Boeing managers on the field when the delivery of a 737 within the contract month threatened to not occur, potentially threatening Boeing not getting paid on time for that plane. The threat of him showing up to find out what was holding a delivery up was as equivalently stressing as a mafia boss "Guido" showing up at one of his factories to find out why his bootleg booze delivery was being held up, with the same consequences. A Boeing manager's body may similarly never be seen again anywhere at the vast expanse of the worldwide Boeing enterprise after such a visit by Mr. Anderson.
He assured over 2400 737 on schedule deliveries that way, decidedly not by ensuring the quality of those 737s. In fact, an ethical and effective quality assurance organization would have been his enemy in reaching those goals. However, since Quality is almost totally subverted at Boeing and is only the noted corrupt shell organization, he didn't have to fight any such hypothetically ethical quality organization at Boeing during any of those deliveries.
What's even more surprising about Mr. Anderson's history at Boeing is that he wasn't ever an aerospace engineer when Boeing hired him. He was just a chemical engineer. What did he engineer while at Boeing? Fire retardant fabrics?
His real expertise at Boeing seems to be as a "fixer" in Boeing Management willing to do anything to get the job done. That is why he rose to the purely figurehead position of the V.P. of the shell organization that is Quality at Boeing where he only had to give the appearance of performing a job that Boeing Executive Management does not want done. Maintaining Boeing's corrupt relationship with the FAA is probably the most important part of his job. From that corrupt relationship all other "value adding" noncompliance at Boeing flows.
Boeing looks like it has completed the subversion of the entire quality system by this appointment of the veritable fox in a hen house.
This appointment shows the extreme level of arrogance in Boeing Executive Management in effectively killing the quality assurance organization in public view with it.
It is a perfect illustration of Boeing Management's lack of any respect for the quality and safety assurance processes they are supposed to comply with as a cost of entry into the commercial airplane market.
As long as unqualified hacks like Mr. Anderson are put in management offices critical to the quality and safety of Boeing airplanes, there is no hope that the first minimally quality and safety compliant Boeing airplane will one year roll out of Boeing factory doors.
Indeed, there is no quality at all in the highest management level in Boeing Commercial Airplanes Quality.
And that is fine with corrupt Boeing Executive Management.
