For those of you who don’t know, KCTS is member of the North West Aerospace Alliance and has been for the past 3 years. We are continuing our support for this sector in 2010 with our ongoing membership and alliances for companies across all tiers.
Over a 4 year period, the NWAA Aerospace Supply Chain Excellence (ASCE) Programme aims to work with 45 Companies to build a world competitive supply chain in the Northwest of England. The ASCE Programme aims to do this by introducing Mentors from World Class companies into selected smaller businesses to assist in the development.
Companies are benchmarked against the “5 Step Learner to World Class Model” against 11 foundation processes to achieve a detailed view of current position and providing training and coaching to improve key areas. The ASCE Programme provides businesses with the tools and techniques to improve their capability across 11 key areas and KCTS will continue to support this sector in 2010 and beyond.
