Introduction to Green Supply Chain Management – Special Bonus Workshop

On the morning of October 25th and an added special bonus for aerospace professionals attending the Canada Makes Additive Manufacturing Forum October 24th at the University of Waterloo is the Workshop – Introduction to Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM).

Register for Canada Makes forum here

For the past couple of years CME Canada Makes has partnered with the GARDN project Greening the Aerospace Supply Chain. Some of you may remember the aerospace survey we shared last year. We are now ready to introduce some of the results of this project.

During the Canada Makes Forum François Charron-Doucet, Director of Quality Control and Scientific Director at Groupe AGÉCO, will present the survey results Green Aerospace Practices in Canada.

The next day is the 3-hour workshop that is intended for professionals from the procurement, operations and design departments involved in the aerospace sector value chain.

The objective of the workshop is to introduce the participants to the concepts and best practices related to GSCM. The completion of the workshop will allow the participants to apply GSCM thinking and facilitate the implementation of GSCM initiatives into various organizational processes.

More specifically, the workshop will cover the following topics:

  • What is GSCM?
  • Why implement GSCM?
  • The approaches to GSCM
    • Green sourcing
    • Green design
    • Green operations
  • How to implement GSCM?
  • Application of GSCM to:
    • Standard parts
    • Avionics
    • Composites
    • Additive manufacturing

The Objectives of the Greening the Aerospace Supply Chain are to define a supply-chain management framework to provide industrials with the capacity to prioritize eco-responsible purchasing actions, define technologies’ green specifications and efficiently treat environmental information. The acquired knowledge will offer a collaboration model fully adapted to the Canadian aerospace sector, facilitating ecodesign across the supply chain.

It aims to contribute to the development of a sustainable air transportation system and will provide industrials and their suppliers with tools and methods to significantly reduce the environmental footprint.

Workshop: Industrial applications of 3D – Presented by Réseau Québec-3D, Canada Makes & AON3D

September 12, 2018 is the next in our series of additive manufacturing workshops Industrial applications of 3D hosted by Montreal’s AON3D. Réseau Québec-3D and Canada Makes are again partnering to showcase some of Canada’s leading experts in 3D printing. This half-day workshop will focus on industrial applications of the 3D technology- how 3D can help you gain an adavantge.

Topics will include; The Journey from Prototyping to Production, a look at how companies have successfully adapted AM since the 90’s, 3D Printing in construction, 3D scanning applications and more. The workshop’s goal is to enlighten you and stimulate thought on how 3D technology can be used in your business.

Recently, certain sectors have seen dramatic shifts in the way they operate. How fast can it happen? Take the U.S. hearing aid industry, it converted to 100% additive manufacturing in less than 500 days. According to one industry CEO, not one company that stuck to traditional manufacturing methods survived. Examples like this speak for themselves about the potential disruption 3D printing can have.

Join us and learn about the power of 3D printing and how companies have prospered through its adoption. 

Real business opportunities are available to those who understand how to use this powerful new tool as part of their process. The workshop offers the chance to meet face-to-face and network with some of Canada’s leaders in additive manufacturing (AM).

We look forward to seeing you, seating is limited so sign up now as our workshops sell out fast!

Workshop: Design for Additive Manufacturing Presented by Réseau Québec-3D, CME Canada Makes & McGill University

March 21, 2018 at McGill University SOLD OUT!Réseau Québec – 3D (RQ3D)

This half-day workshop will feature presentation from some of Canada’s leading experts in additive manufacturing (AM) and offer the chance to network with some of Canada’s AM professionals. The workshop’s goal is to help industry personnel  understand one of the most important components of AM, designing for additive manufacturing DfAM.

Additive Manufacturing is changing your sector whether you like it or not, be ready!

It is no secret that AM is disrupting key sectors of Canada’s economy and Réseau Québec-3D and Canada Makes are working together to bring you the expertise and knowledge needed to help understand how you can use this powerful new technology to your advantage and be ready to adapt.

As usual, networking will be a primary focus of this workshop so we plan on including breaks and a networking lunch so you can ask questions face-to-face. Experts from Altair, Renishaw, Expanse Microtechnologies and the CRIQ will offer insightful discussions in their area of expertise. We look forward to seeing you there!
