NASA inspector general report details Boeing's failures on SLS

Thu Oct 11, 2018 8:33 pm

"We found Boeing’s poor performance is the main reason for the significant cost increases and schedule delays to developing the SLS core stage," the report, signed by NASA Inspector General Paul Martin, states. "Specifically, the project’s cost and schedule issues stem primarily from management, technical, and infrastructure issues directly related to Boeing’s performance."

I read this article and a couple others. It is pretty damning. And nowadays, in the age of SpaceX less exception will be made for such gross failures to meet budget, deadlines, and goals. Not that SpaceX hasn't blown a bunch of them but they have done vastly better at a faster pace and lower budget than Boeing.
