Event Details

The Institute for Advanced Manufacturing at the University of Nottingham in collaboration with VA Innovation Ltd., are delighted to announce that as part of the Aerospace UP project, they will be hosting a FREE two-day interactive workshop “Driving Innovation in Your Workforce through Lean Six Sigma” for SMEs based in within the Midlands.

This two day workshop introduction to lean thinking will be led by a Lean Practitioner and Six Sigma Certified Black Belt, to help attendees improve their business performance through lean practices and learn new techniques for problem solving within their businesses.

The schedule for the workshops are:

  • Monday 23rd May 10am-4pm
  • Tuesday 24th May 10am-4pm

Attendees can attend in-person at the event, to be hosted in the Advanced Manufacturing Building, University of Nottingham, or virtually through Microsoft Teams. We would recommend attending in person if you can, so you can receive the benefits of interactive sessions. The workshops will include a catered lunch and an optional tour of the world class facilities within the Advanced Manufacturing Building too.

This workshop is exclusively available for SMEs within the Midlands, who have not utilised the business support available through the Aerospace UP project.

The workshop has a capacity of 20 businesses for the in-person places and is limited to 1 attendee per business per day. Attendees can be interchangeable from each business over the 2 days. A small or medium business is defined as having less than 250 employees, no more than 25% of the organisation being owned by an enterprise that is not itself an SME, and an annual turnover not exceeding €50 million or an annual balance sheet not exceeding €43 million.
