About the lecture
Advanced manufacturing in the defence industry
In this lecture Nigel Whitehead will give his perspective on Advanced Manufacturing in the Defence Industry and describe how BAE Systems harnesses the skills of its people, as well as the latest engineering techniques and processes to design and deliver defence equipment and services.
In an ever-changing environment, and with its customers under financial pressures, the Company continually adapts and flexes to meet the needs of armed forces at sea, in the air, and on land.
Nigel will outline the importance of working effectively with a supply chain of 9,000 UK companies, universities and other organisations in maintaining a technological edge.
