Troy, Michigan-based AGM Aerospace is launching an international supply chain collaborative here at FIA 2014. The collaborative is designed to bring Tier 1 through 5 suppliers together to “collaborate on a new methodology,” according to AGM director of aerospace Gavin Brown, “to take the cost out of the cost, using the aggregate demand model.”
The plan is to share information on a cloud-based platform to facilitate digital manufacturing. This will include engineering, modeling, simulation, production and delivery of finished components.
At a reception on Monday, Brown said, “This event is instrumental in getting AGM Aerospace’s supply chain value recognized within a group that shares the same strategies.” Co-hosts of the reception included the Michigan Aerospace Manufacturing Association, Aerospacevendors, Automation Alley, PNAA and AGM Aerospace.
AGM also announced that it is building capabilities to “work within the LED lighting and wire harness markets.”
