Management of technical and organisational interactions by proximity: the hub firms in aeronautical sector (In French)
AbstractOne of the features of the model of organization which is gradually set up in the aeronautical activity is, for the airframe manufacturers, the passage of a statute of “aeronautical manufacturer” to “of architect-integrator of aeronautical systems”. The emergence of this model is not without consequences on the nature and the contents of the relations inter-firms, particularly the organization of the supply chain. One of the principal characteristics of this organization is the emergence and the development of new actors - the hub firms - as an ad hoc organisational form of management of the technical and organisational interactions between the architect-integrators and the other firms which take part in the production of the planes. In particular, this organisational form uses a temporary geographical proximity, taking the form of physical plateau facilitating the interactions in face to face.
