Research on a Navigating Hierarchy Model of Aircraft Manufacturing Supply Chain
Aircraft is a complex product, and the Supply-Chain System of Aircraft Manufacturing has many characters which containing hierarchy structure, wide contents in each level, complex relationship between providers etc. So it has a great significance to do research on this. After studying the Kleinberg model and analyzing the characters of providers’ data in Aircraft Manufacturing industry, advanced changes of the Kleinberg model are made, and also the data of Supply-Chain of Aircraft Manufacturing is projected to circle structure, base on these two factors a advanced hierarchical navigable Kleinberg model is proposed, it is more suitable for the Aircraft Manufacturing Supply Chain and its structure is corresponding with the structure of Aircraft Manufacturing Supply Chain. From this advanced model we can do easier research on Supply-Chain System of Aircraft Manufacturing than Kleinberg model.
