Ed Pierson, a former senior manager at Boeing, warned the company about potential safety flaws with the 737 Max and that employees at the Renton, Washington plant - where the plane is produced - were overworked and exhausted, and making mistakes, the New York Times reported Monday.
According to prepared remarks, Pierson testified that a "factory in chaos" contributed to failings that investigators believe resulted in two crashes overseas and grounded the plane model worldwide.
A spokesman for Boeing said company officials were aware of Pierson's production concerns, discussed them in detail and took "appropriate measures to evaluate them".

One of Boris Johnson's aides swore live on television after a journalist tried to get the prime minister to agree to an interview. But the PM fobbed off the crew, telling them he would be "with you in a second" before disappearing into the industrial unit.
"The suggestion by Mr. Pierson of a link between his concerns and the recent MAX accidents is completely unfounded", Johndroe said. "And the suggestion of such a linkage is inconsistent with the facts that have been reported about these accidents".
Ed Pierson told NBC News he warned the company about problems at the Renton plant months before two of the planes crashed, killing a total of almost 350 people. The review suggested that a 737 Max could be expected to crash, on average, once every two or three years without design changes.
A former Boeing manager raised concerns about the production problems of Boeing 737 Max months before two of its airplanes crashed, claiming the lives of nearly 350 people.
While there is no conclusive evidence that links the crashes to the problems pointed out by Pierson, it adds a fresh angle to the inquiry.
Boeing, who stated they took Pierson's considerations critically, has acknowledged each crashes have been brought on by issues with the planes anti-stall software program, the report stated.
Pierson, a former Navy squad commander and graduate of the US Naval Academy, who joined Boeing in 2008, went to work for the team that was building the 737 MAX in April 2015. "If regulators don't closely examine the production process, it's going to happen again the next time Boeing gets behind".
