    <P>Boeing has revealed new details of its initial production plans for the 787, as the first test airframe begins final assembly in Everett, Washington.</P> <P>Production is based on a "pulsed" line that could be changed to a moving line like those of the 737/777 "if we want to", says Steve Westby, 787 vice-president of manufacturing and quality. Following initial preparation of sections brought in by 747 Dreamlifter in a pre-integration bay, the sections are assembled in position one of a three-position line. A fourth position is also allocated for future production growth. "By line number 100 we will be at a six-day flow, though our stretch target is three days," says Westby.</P> <P align=center><IMG style="BORDER-RIGHT: 1px solid; BORDER-TOP: 1px solid; BORDER-LEFT: 1px solid; WIDTH: 445px; BORDER-BOTTOM: 1px solid; HEIGHT: 296px" alt="" src="../assets/getAsset.aspx?ItemID=17887" border=0></P> <P>Flight International has also learned Boeing is adopting a "ZA" nomenclature for th
