Ralph, one interesting article on how the PLM takes the merit of Boeing success and, at the same time, the blame for Airbus failure was recently published on BaseLine magazine at this URL.
I'm not sure it has all the details you will like to know, but it's a very interesting article.

The Baseline article makes for interesting reading indeed, but is woefully inaccurate and/or misinformed regarding the simulation aspects (see page 2).

The fact that "a wing snapped during a stress test" is not all that remarkable, given that the test was intended to take the wind to ultimate load (i.e. failure).

And so on.
