planToday’s Manufacturing and Design sector sits in the very heart of our thriving industry. New technologies have driven significant steps towards the manufacturers providing more cost effective and efficient products, from complete aircraft design down to better system and component design. These new technologies flow down into the manufacturing space which has its own unique challenges including rigorous cost management and quality of product as well as on time delivery to a client base that must meet with tough aircraft delivery schedules. We know the demands that these new technologies and customer requirements place on the sector players and how to best manage them in a highly competitive yet quality driven market.
