Seminars at Southern Manufacturing deliver training for free

05 January 2010

The free technical seminar programme for Southern Manufacturing 2010 has been announced. For many visitors - and indeed exhibitors - the technical seminar programme is one of the highlights of the two-day exhibition that takes place at FIVE, Farnborough on February 10th and 11th. This year's show will once again deliver a wide-ranging programme of sessions that will be of interest to anyone involved in engineering or manufacturing enterprise.

The free seminar programme is always an extremely popular attraction of the Southern Manufacturing show. The sessions taking place over both days of the show are a fantastic opportunity for visitors and exhibitors alike to acquire practical advice and guidance on topics affecting manufacturing business today from experts in their respective fields. No other event offers free access to such high-calibre technical and commercial expertise, and is a further compelling reason for engineering and industrial professionals to visit the show.

This year's seminar programme encompasses discussions on technical developments, business management, marketing and the latest industrial legislation.

In his session, Rapid Manufacturing in the Future, Graham Tromans from the Rapid Manufacturing Research Group at Loughborough University will assess the impact of the latest Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Tooling techniques on future manufacturing. Mark Schaffer from the Manufacturing Advisory Service -South East (MAS-SE) will examine the topic of Value Stream Mapping - how to map processes to streamline manufacturing, cut lead times, reduce cost and improve quality. Collaborate to win more business presented by Clive Lewis of Achieving The Difference will look at why an increasing number of prime and tier 1 customers are awarding business to suppliers working collaboratively, plus practical advice on developing collaborations of your own.

In Secrets of Low Cost Marketing, Chris Needham from MAS-SE will examine how manufacturing businesses can extract maximum value from even the most modest marketing budgets. Alan Powell from the CE Marking Association will look at the latest legislation and how to minimise the costs of compliance in his session CE Marking: An Update to Legislative Requirements. Other topics covered over a busy two days will include Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing, Building Competitive Advantage, Supply Chain and SC21 and How to Succeed at New Product Development.

Entry to all the seminar sessions and to the show itself is completely free to business visitors, but pre-booking online is strongly advised to avoid disappointment. FIVE Farnborough offers plentiful free car parking, superb access by road, rail or air, and an excellent selection of local hotels and restaurants to make your visit as enjoyable as it is productive.
