MAA aerospace manufacturing strategy meeting at Delcam
The Midlands Aerospace Alliance is to hold a free-to-attend meeting showing suppliers how to align their manufacturing strategies with their aerospace customers at Delcam’s Birmingham headquarters on Wednesday 21st March. The event will explain to delegates the manufacturing strategies aerospace companies expect their suppliers to have in place and show how other supply-chain companies are meeting that challenge.
The day will include keynote presentations from supply-chain executives at major aerospace companies, such as Aero Engine Controls, Meggitt, Moog and Rolls-Royce, plus presentations on manufacturing strategy from leading Midlands companies in the aerospace supply chain. There will also be an introduction to the MAA’s new tool for capability road-mapping, which helps suppliers to present their manufacturing strategies to their customers.
By participating in this event, delegates will be able to understand what their customers expect from them now and in the future; to benchmark their manufacturing strategies with other supply-chain companies; to align their manufacturing capabilities with their customers’ needs; and to learn to talk the same "language” as their customers. Attendees will also have the opportunity to network with senior representatives of their customers and with like-minded peers within the supply chain.
