Come to this meeting to see if you would like to join a Midlands Aerospace Alliance initiative to improve the performance of your company - and how your customers perceive your performance.
The MAA is launching a new scheme to help members work together to improve the performance -- delivery, quality, productivity -- of their companies, hence the performance of our overall supply chains. This is an initiative of the MAA Supply Chain Performance Group, chaired by MAA Director Annette Rothwell, Vice President, Operations Excellence, Esterline Corporation.
We are going to adopt the new UK national scheme known as National Manufacturing Competitiveness Levels (NMCL) or in aerospace SC21 Competitiveness and Growth. The original SC21 programme with its bronze, silver and gold awards for quality and performance will be retained. What's different is that the new scheme will actually give you the targeted help you need to improve your performance to attain those awards. Moreover, NMCL has been carefully designed to make it equally applicable and valid in other industries such as automotive.
Some of our leading smaller supply chain manufacturers are coming together to form a "cluster" of companies under the MAA's wing that will collaborate, so they can share costs and help each other improve, using the NMCL approach. Come and see if you'd like to join them.
Already signed up are:
- AE Aerospace
- ANT Industries
- Arrowsmith Engineering
- G&O Springs
- Phoenix CNC
Annette Rothwell and the MAA Supply Chain Performance Group invite you to this meeting to find out more what the Midlands cluster of companies plans to do and -- potentially -- how you can join them!
There will be some investment required, but we plan to save you much more money in the medium term. And there is likely to be grant funding available via the national scheme to soften the blow.
