Boeing Names RPI “Supplier of the Year” Based on Research Conducted by Prof. Miki Amitay
The Supplier of the Year awards are based on quality, on-time delivery, post-delivery support, and cost and demonstrated ability to anticipate and respond to changing requirements. Boeing annually purchases more than $50 billion in goods and services from a global network of more than 28,000 suppliers that collectively employ more than 1.2 million people. RPI was selected as the supplier of the year in the technology category, based on the work of Prof. Amitay on Active Flow Control to enhance the performance of air vehicles. This year, only two universities were selected for this extremely prestigious award.
