The National Association for Surface Finishing (NASF) has announced the return of a special session titled “Competing and Remaining Competitive in a Nadcap Quality World,” at the 2016 SUR/FIN Manufacturing & Technology Conference and Tradeshow, to be held at the South Point Hotel & Conference Center in Las Vegas, June 6-8.
In today's competitive and changing market, success in manufacturing demands significant knowledge for innovative results and a detailed/well thought-out succession plan for the future. Nadcap accreditation identifies companies who excel in top-quality special processes. Most aerospace prime contractors and their special process suppliers now adhere to Nadcap, which defines a standardized approach to quality assurance and establishes a consistent method to improving performance throughout the supply chain. In addition to a Quality Management System, these accreditations are the gateway for companies to tap into the highly demanding and highly lucrative aerospace supplier market.
This informative session includes four 30 to 40-minute sections and will finish with a question and answer roundtable with the leading experts in the industry. Section details include:
- Why Nadcap? The History and Structure of NADCAP/Nadcap (Presented by Michael Davis – Prior Lead Nadcap Auditor; Former Chem Processing Task Group Chair; Retired GE Aviation Engineer)
- Stepping Up Your Game to Compete in the Aerospace Arena (Presented by William Corcoran – Lead Nadcap Auditor; Former Nadcap Supplier; Nadcap Consultant)
