    If you are attending the EEF National Manufacturing Conference today come and say hello. The Network team are here on the 3rd floor outside the main conference room. We have a fantastic Nautilus speaker - loaned by EEF Member company Bowers & Wilkins - on display. It really is a day to celebrate everything that is great about British manufacturing. Below Network Director Jim Davison with the Nautilus speaker.

    An interesting article published on Daily Kanban this week compared the approaches of Ford's Kentucky Truck Plant to Tesla in relation to automation and the factories of the future debate. The article explores how Ford's Kentucky Truck Plant relies on upskilling its workforce and produces results that robots may never fully be able to replicate. It looks at where automation works well and the need for human interaction in the plant's processes. The author leaves us in no doubt that the Ford model is preferable to that of Tesla's but what do you think? Read the article here and let us...

    I thought I'd share an interesting news item on Boeing's new facility in Sheffield which is due to open this year. According to James Needham, senior operations manager for Boeing Sheffield, the facility will be a smart factory and will take advantage of the 4th Industrial Revolution. It is situated in the same business park as the University of Sheffield's Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre. For more on this story read here

    Yesterday's launch of Elon Musk's SpaceX rocket - the Falcon Heavy - is every engineer's dream. To push the boundaries of human endeavour and to realise one's vision is the crux of what great engineering is about. The rocket is twice as powerful as the rockets that took humans to the moon in the 1960s and 1970s and is capable of lifting 5 London double-decker buses into space. Tell us about great engineering projects that are taking place here in the UK today. What in your opinion is something with the wow factor? Every day across the UK engineers with incredible vision are making a...

    Hi Garry Clawson This is a great area for wider discussion. We will highlight this in the newsletter next week. It's the wider impact on the environment and the images on the recent Blue Planet II series that really brought home the impact plastic waste is having on wildlife. If each company had a target for package reduction then this would be one step to collectively tackling a big global challenge. Best regards, Daniel.
