The A350 model comes as the latest and the most technologically advanced Airbus commercial aircraft, over half of w hich is made up of various composite materials. How ever, in an attempt to save several years w hile developing new aircraft types, as w ell as introduce new materials and technologies, aircraft manufacturers are also intensively reshaping their supply chain, as w ell as outsourcing both component design and production.
