SEMPRO, a company that provides training and consultancy services on many different subjects to the Turkish defence and aerospace sector, will host the international SemproConX19 Conference on November 18–19 in Ankara, during which it will host many experienced names in product and configuration management. During the event, in which focus will be on business excellence and digital transformation, various names who are considered doyens in their respective fields and who work in the leading companies of the sector will share their experiences with Turkey.
The SemproConX19 Conference has been designed roughly along the same lines at the CM2 Day organised by SEMPRO last year. SEMPRO will host this year’s conference over two days, so as to allow a greater transfer of experience to the participants. The three-day training activities that will be held immediately after the conference aim to solidify and consolidate the experiences discussed during the conference.
The conference, which will see the sharing of experience concerning PLM applications for the CM2 method and digitalisation, will feature both Turkish and foreign speakers from such companies as ASML, Arçelik, CIMdata, FNSS, Gulfstream, IPX, ROKETSAN and TEI. The conference will be geared towards professionals, quality system engineers and senior managers working in the field of product management, and will be joined by Ray Wozny, CEO of IPX, as one of the key speakers.
IPX ConX Comes to Turkey
IPX is the original developer of the CM2 method, and has provided CM2 training to 1,800 different organisations to date. An event similar to the one planned by SEMPRO for November is held annually by IPX in the United States, and the 31st outing of this IPX ConX was attended by representatives of ASELSAN, FNSS, HAVELSAN and Roketsan from Turkey. Semiha Yaşar, Founder and Owner of SEMPRO, highlighted the importance of IPX’s participation at SemproConX19: “There is no need, in my mind, to dwell at length about the level of experience of Ray Wozny in this particular field as the CEO of IPX, a company that has provided CM training to 100s of different organisations. His participation as a speaker is a great opportunity for us. Participants at SemproConX19 will be able to share these experiences without having to go to the United States.”
Applied Workshops and Training to Reinforce Experience
The SemproConX19 Conference will continue between November 20 and 22 with various parallel workshops and training activities, with one such activity being a three-day certification programme given by CIMdata that aims to assist with proper decision-making prior to a PLM investment. Concurrently with this programme, there will also be a two-day CM2-15 training program designed specifically for senior managers, in which participants will gain the ability to better identify the strengths and weaknesses of the organisations they lead. This training will be followed by a one-day applied workshop activity.
Commenting on the training and workshop activities, Yaşar said: “These training and workshop activities, which will be held immediately after the experience-sharing at the conference, will give us the chance to further reinforce the relayed experiences through direct practice and implementation. With this conference and its accompanying training activities, we will convey, in a filtered and concentrated form, all of IPX’s experiences in process transformation and CIMdata’s experiences of PLM.”
