Peterborough Manufacturing Club Help For Manufacturers

Peterborough Manufacturing Group What Should It Do

Peterborough Manufacturing Club An Opportunity To Help Peterborough Manufacturers

A Peterborough Manufacturing group is in the process of developed. The cluster will potentially offer a number of services / elements to manufacturers and related companies.

To best serve the Peterborough manufacturing group I think the following activities should be considered

Visits To Peterborough Manufacturing Factories

  1. Factory visits: I remember when there used a made in the UK programme of best practice visits to major manufacturers where you had the opportunity to 
    • Walk round the factory under normal operation conditions
    • Get talks from key people within the organisation
    • Discuss challenges and successes
    • From an innovation and creativity perspective they provided a fantastic opportunity to see how others solved problems that were possibly typical to many
  2. Informative presentations: having some industry recognised speakers who have shown that they have the capability to make a difference within UK manufacture.
  3. Potentially there are opportunities for a buying group to be formed that could consolidate procurement of standard components / items
  4. With such a group of manufacturing experts in one place there is possibly the chance of having a manufacturing questions. Now it could be that with a manufacturing group there is an event greater need to have non engineers as part of the process. Key questions for the manufacturing sector are possibly based around a number of themes
    1. Efficiency  – how can I make more for less resource or how can I make the item quicker without compromising quality
    2. Effectiveness
      • How do I get more customers? Now this is a classic question in its broadness. Which new customers do you want. Do you really want customers to buy that particular product range
      • How can I  increase my prices.? Again another ‘priceless’ question which is very marketing focused and requires extensive marketing knowledge if one is to make informed decisions
