We plan to have an in-person Conference with the Technical Sessions being available for virtual attendees.
The forum provides for industry personnel involved in the supply chain and related activities while providing ample networking with each other as well as discussions with suppliers.
The meeting agenda includes:
Supply Chain Risk Management – Benchmarking Aerospace: Over the past 18 months, the pandemic has exposed weaknesses in the global supply chain that has affected everyone. Shortages in semiconductor production and the subsequent ripple effect has impacted every market in the world. Manufacturers have relied more and more on low cost economy options and we now see the inability to recover quickly when those options cannot produce. We’ve also seen the impact when domestic suppliers have had to lay off workforce due to the downturn and are not able to respond now that demand is returning. Benchmarking practices in the aerospace industry may provide some proactive tools to identify and mitigate supply chain risks.
