Site managers have just days to take up their free ticket to best practice excellence at Works Management’s Manufacturing Management Show (MMS) at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.

The show opens its doors next Wednesday (23 November) and features how-to case studies from leading manufacturing operators, hands on workshops and an exhibition of the latest manufacturing plant and services.

MMS, which runs until 24 November, has been specifically designed for busy site managers with an emphasis on bringing together advice on all aspects of factory management under one roof. To register click here.

The show’s conference kicks off at 9.15am on 23 November with Tom Russell of Bentley Motors discussing how the luxury carmaker has taken proactive steps to address key manufacturing skills shortages. Bentley went back to the drawing board with its apprenticeship programme to put a greater emphasis on training up recruits with the most in-demand production line skills, Russell will reveal.

Other first day conference speakers include Lee Baker, who will be discussing maintenance strategy at Coca-Cola’s Wakefield plant; and Jeremy Praud of Lauras International, who examines the challenge of motivating and engaging factory employees.

Jaguar Land Rover and Toyota will be among the speakers on the conference’s second day (24 November). In total, 14 sessions covering topics ranging from safety to materials handling and cyber security will be taking place across the two days.

The conference will be complemented by a leading exhibition of plant and services. Suppliers of PPE, ERP, factory signage and MRO solutions will be on hand with demonstrations of their products.

Three workshop theatres will also be running from the showfloor. Here, suppliers and industry stakeholders will offer hints and tips on business challenges including PUWER regulations, export growth, lineside improvements and Industry 4.0.

The show’s blend of different learning forums made it a key destination for anyone seeking continuous improvement said Russell of Bentley Motors. “Being involved in events like the Manufacturing Management Show are vital. They allow us to continuously improve, develop and share our best practice across the sector as well as learn from other industry leaders.”
