PLM Central have recently been selected the ADS’s Aerospace 4.0’s Steering Group, with representatives from member companies serving all sized organisation including academia and members from the Catapult organisations.
The steering group see their mission as educating, facilitating and fostering the adoption of these digital technologies in the UK Aerospace Sector. It isn’t only about the technology, it’s about the successful adoption and deployment of digital technologies to create value for all the stakeholders in our particular industry…from the end consumer of the service/product all the way through the value chain to raw material producers. To be effective in tackling this issue, we will need to collaborate, share knowledge across the industry and encourage the development of business cases to support the industrial-strength deployment of Industry4.0 technologies that will create a competitive advantage for UK aerospace.
This will be done through regular events at a local, regional and national level which will be proactive and encourage adoption and deployment, whilst also influencing UK Government policy and strategy. We have big ambitions…but it’s an important time for all of us in UK manufacturing, particularly in the aerospace sector.
