A company like Boeing cannot exist without a water tight supply chain. By definition, Boeing's work is all about contingency, risk management and fault avoidance, which I am sure applies to their supply chain too. Therefore, one supplier's poor work cannot be attributed to all the supply chain members and to a very successful company like Boeing. In cases like this, the best any company can do is to analyse where and why things went wrong, make the required changes to move forward stronger and with improved wisdom.

I would say you are spot on. It is not the supply chain .....it is a supplier or two or three. It is just in our face because BOEING is a big company which created a cutting edge passanger plane. They used more battery backed systems to replace a lot of the electro mechanical systems used in the hydraulics........less weight more fuel savings, longer in flight mileage. Pushing new technology always has draw backs. Thankfullly all the planes were grounded and there was no tragic loss of life. My bet is that BOEING will find the fix and the 787 will go on to be a great plane.
