Lean in Europe : Visit 30 Fly Spa

July 03 2023 -> July 04 2023

Lean in Europe #30 - 03 & 04 July 2023 in Treviso

This visit will look at lean in machining for the aeronautic, aerospace and energy industries.

It is too late to apply for a place on this visit (the application deadline has passed).

A two-part pre-visit group discussion will take place on the evening of Monday 3 July and will address a lean discussion / activity and then introductions to Forgital Group, Fly S.p.a., the opportunities and challenges of the aerospace market, certification / qualification challenges.

The main site visit will take place on Tuesday, 4 July. It will begin with explanations about what Fly does - range of components and production volumes, materials, main machining and assembly options, special processes, shop floor KPIs, its quality system, production planning. There will then be a 'deep dive' on the manufacturing routing of two specific parts, one of which is well-established and the other which is in an 'entry-into-service' phase. Fly would like participants to identify possible improvements. The visit will include a Gemba tour, detailed explanations, open discussions.
