Dear Members,

The North West Aerospace Alliance, together with some of its leading member companies, has been running a series of events (supply chain workshops) which bring together the leading aerospace companies from across the North West of England and beyond to discuss and develop solutions for the major subject matters for our industry; Supply Chain, Skills, Manufacturing and Technology.

Our fifth supply chain workshop takes place on Wednesday 9th March 2016 at the Best Western Hotel in Leyland and will be focussed on Technology. This event will feature keynote presentations from experts in their fields. Our speakers include;

Mark Wilson, Principal Technologist – Advanced Manufacturing, MAI Manufacturing Operations (S420C) Military Air & Information, BAE Systems who will provide an insight for our members into BAE Systems view of the future of Manufacturing Technology and particularly from an Aerostructures perspective

NEW!We will also be hearing about the latest from the AMRC Northwest and the exciting proposal for bringing the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre to the North West of England.

Simon Docker, OPEN MIND Technologies UK Ltd who will present on the new innovative methods, processes and CAM strategies that could be embraced by the Supply Chain to improve overall productivity and efficiency. OPEN MIND Technologies is one of the world’s most successful developers and providers of CAM software for programming milling machines.

I will also be providing an exciting update on the future direction of the Aerospace Growth Partnership Boardand what that might mean for manufacturing in the UK and the supply chain in particular.

As in previous workshops, the presentations will help us to stimulate the discussion and debate we will then have through facilitated breakout groups where you will be encouraged to share your views on the future of our industry. The facilitated breakout sessions also offer you the opportunity to network much more effectively with the other attendees.
