The University of Sunderland and AMAP have established the North East Productivity Forum for manufacturing companies to meet and discuss productivity improvements in a non competitive forum. The forum is designed to allow like minded organizations to meet and exchange best practice in order to learn from one another’s experience.
Meeting on a quarterly basis, it is intended that each event will discuss different topics with, wherever possible, live demonstrations of innovations and improvements made by member companies.
Thus the forum will:
1. Provide access to networking opportunities with local, national and international companies
2. Acquire and share knowledge on best practice tools and techniques in productivity to improve efficiency
3. Share insights on the challenges faced by companies on their pathway to improve productivity
