In the last call with investors GE Aviation CEO said:
"Yes. Look, on our guidance for segment margin, as you know, we continue to ramp LEAP. And LEAP is going to mix adversely in our commercial portfolio. Why? We've been building CFMs for the last 20 years. We're down that learning curve a number of times, and the cost -- plus, there's unbelievable amount of volume, so the cost -- including the aftermarket. So the -- fundamentally, we're at entitlement and for quite a few years on the CFM product line. Now we're transitioning to the next generation, which is LEAP. Not only are -- we are beating our cost curve in production, but as we get more volume, we get more product out there, we do more service, that cost just continues to come down. You should think about 1.5% to 2% per year. So this mix shift is going to be with us for a little time. That being said, we're offsetting it to the best of our ability. Just with the increase in the service business, military looks good. I mean, if you take a look at the markets, again, we're guiding flat, but we're optimistic. We really are optimistic. We've got very positive win rates in our military programs, and we continue to see a strong commercial market. Now in 2020, don't forget, we start to introduce the 9X. So now we have to go through the transition of the GE90 to the 9X starting in 2020. And we'll see that for the first time in 2020 with about 150 basis points of pressure on the business, again, offset by the strength of the aftermarket as well as military and our ability, quite frankly, to rightsize engineering for the future of our commercial programs, in addition, to transition those folks for more opportunities to actually improve this forecast in the military side."
Do you think "rightsize" engineering means layoffs?
