Georgia Tech Honored by Boeing for Exceptional Performance
Georgia Tech and RIM Director Professor Henrik Christensen recently were recognized by Boeing for outstanding performance through the company's Supplier of the Year Awards. The Institute was one of 16 organizations to receive the award from a pool of more than 17,500 Boeing suppliers in more than 50 countries. Georgia Tech was the only university honored in the category of Academia, which recognizes performance as a strategic university. As one of Boeing's eight strategic universities, Georgia Tech provides increased knowledge and understanding of fluid flow, advanced manufacturing technology, mobile platforms and robotics, design and aircraft technology through basic and applied research. Professor Christensen was one of five Georgia Tech professors specifically recognized by Boeing in the award.
The Supplier of the Year awards are based on quality, on-time delivery, post-delivery support, and cost and demonstrated ability to anticipate and respond to changing requirements. "These supplier-partners excelled in delivering results, performance and customer satisfaction in 2011, and they play a key role in enabling Boeing to be a global leader in technology and innovation," said Jim McNerney, chairman, president and CEO of The Boeing Company. "We are grateful to have them as key members of our team."
