South Bay (CA) Chapter September 10 meeting

In recent years, the aerospace markets for both commercial and military products have become more and more competitive. With industry consolidation and few new aircraft being launched this trend is becoming ever more prevalent.

Most companies have reacted to these challenges by initiating continuous improvement activities focused largely on leaning out production operations and reducing direct labor product content. Businesses who have embraced lean initiative for many years are finding diminishing returns from this approach. In many cases this activity has been accomplished by the outsourcing of non-core operations and work content, reducing the internal production base.

Given this situation, many companies have realized they must redirect their attention to creating value through enhanced supply chain efficiencies. Ducommun is in the midst of such a supply chain transformation.

Please join us in Torrance, CA, on Thursday, September 10, 2015, 7:30am – 9:00am PDT (networking at 7:00am), when Joel Benkie (President & COO) and Jerry Redondo (VP of Operational Excellence) of Ducommun share some key aspect of their strategy and approach.

Attendance is limited to the #1 or #2 operating executives of A&D companies or plants, i.e., organizations that have a direct role in production, e.g., engineering, fabrication, coating, and testing. Likewise, to promote exchange, each meeting is limited to 20 attendees.
