SEATTLE, Aug. 30, 2007 — Boeing [NYSE: BA] has signed an agreement with Honeywell Aerospace that will allow them to significantly reduce an airline’s maintenance costs by providing expendable parts.

The companies teamed as part of Boeing’s Integrated Materials Management (IMM) initiative. Through this program, Boeing and suppliers like Honeywell maintain an airline’s inventory of spare parts – providing items as needed. By reducing the airline’s own inventory, IMM reduces the airline’s cost of doing business.
