Abstract: One 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.
