Bombardier Aerospace is the third largest civil aircraft manufacturer in the world and a leading supplier of business, regional and amphibious aircraft, with fiscal year 2005 aerospace revenues totaling US$8.1 billion. Bombardier Regional Aircraft leads the 50, 70, and 90-passenger regional carrier market.
The rapid pace of change in the airline and business jet markets, and more intense competition means that Bombardier Aerospace must develop innovative aircraft at an even faster rate. To do so,, the company must tightly coordinate the activities of its global product development network that includes internal teams and global development partners.
