November 5, 2014, Rybinsk. - Increase of the companies’ throughput and performance of the obligations relevant to the industrial and technological cooperation within the division were the two main items on the agenda of United Engine Corporation’s Commercial Engines Division’ board meeting. Following the meeting results, a resolution was adopted to work out a systemic approach to outsourcing applicable to all the division companies, and to study the feasibility of integrating purchase orders for standard goods placed both with third parties and the NPO Saturn-approved suppliers.
According to Ilya Federov, NPO Saturn CEO, head and chairperson of the Commercial Engines Division, “setting up a system of outsourcing under the conditions of year-to-year growth of the production volume and of the need to boost the company’s throughput is one of the most critical tasks we are faced with at the moment. To date, NPO Saturn has accumulated some positive experience in promoting both the outsourcing and industrial cooperation. A list of outsourced items requiring neither high qualification nor technologies has been devised and will be submitted to suppliers to relieve the production facilities of NPO Saturn allowing the company to focus on the gas turbine engineering core competencies. Since to all the companies in the Commercial Engines Division this is a prospective and long-term activity, it needs to be managed on a systemic basis throughout the division as an integral part of the overall supply chain which is under construction now. In particular, the companies need to unify their outsourcing techniques which would ultimately lead to the emergence of a unique supplier evaluation and approval system and a shared outsourcing supplier database.”
During the session, the parties also reviewed the performance of the division companies demonstrated over the 9 months of 2014; a decision was made to strictly follow the main indicators of the 2014 budget.
