NetJets reportedly owns over 600 jets which it operates via NetJets Aviation. This high number of jets enables them to successfully allocate a jet to a member with only four hours notice. Out of those 600 jets, more than 240 are reportedly Cessna Citation business jets. And while numbers of craft are important so is maintance availablility.
So, NetJets has started an awards program to highlight their partners who are helping them meet these demanding goals. The first winner of a "NetJets Annual Performance Award" was Textron's Cessna Aircraft for providing a 30% reduction in maintenace time per jet operated. Cessna Aircraft highlights the use of applying Six Sigma lean improvement processes to achieving this reduction. [jobwerx]
