Perspectives on Supply Chain Productivity
IMC Boardroom 2, IMC Building, WMG, University of Warwick

Industry has long recognised that, it is supply chains, not firms, that compete, but has struggled to turn this vision into reality. Symptoms include unfilled customer orders, excess inventories, and suppliers (particular SMEs) that struggle to deal with the erratic demands of those further up the chain. This undermines not only the productivity of individual firms, but the productivity of the industrial supply chains they form. This event will showcase the notion of supply chain productivity from multiple perspectives and how this can be improved through better integrated end-to-end supply chain.

AEROSPACE ELECTRIFICATION: ACCELERATING THE OPPORTUNITY
International Institute for Product and Service Innovation (IIPSI), University of Warwick, Coventry, CV4 7AL
Electrification is bringing a huge change for the aerospace sector

With this change comes challenges… and opportunities. ATI and WMG invite you this unique event to discuss the challenges of the electrification journey with key speakers from across the supply chain, from large OEMs to smaller start-ups, to build better understanding around this pivotal technology opportunity and to help accelerate the future potential opportunities. The purpose of the event is to build consortiums around the challenges with access to ATI funding for future R&D projects and to foster collaboration and networking cross-sector to encourage technology transfer from adjacent industries.
