March 26, 2015, Rybinsk. On 23-25 March 2015 Rybinsk played host to the second international technological forum dubbed “Innovation. Technologies. Manufacturing”.
Three days of meaningful work came to an end. The meetings, dedicated reports, discussions, debates, new opportunities, ideas and projects took place in the frame of the plenary sessions, 14 topical sections, 5 sections of the scientific-technical conference dedicated to the 100th birthday of the chief designer P.A. Kolesov, the 8th UEC Lean workshop, the field session of the interbranch scientific-technical CIAM seminar and visits to the companies in the Turbomachinery and power engineering cluster.
962 forum participants out of which 348 representatives of the Yaroslavl Region and 614 guests from various Russian regions (Moscow, Saint-Petersburg, Kazan, Perm, Samara, Ufa, Yekaterinburg and Rostov-on-Don) and from abroad (Germany, France, Italy, Israel, Ukraine). The forum organizers were delighted not only by the quantitative but also by the qualitative composition of the event participants: the 60/40 ratio between the business and science; approximately 50% of the participants represented the small- and medium-sized business and entrepreneurship.
According to NPO Saturn chief executive officer Ilya Fedorov, “further down the road - and there is no doubt that the forum will become a good tradition - we plan to get even more scientific institutions involved. To create incentives for our colleagues from the universities, from research institutes especially the scientific youth to take a more active part in the activity of the forum’s sections. Because only the bringing of science and the industry closer to each other is able to become the driving force behind the development of the high-tech industries. Such scientific-industrial environment would allow the companies in the Turbomachinery and power engineering innovative regional cluster to get access to global joint projects.
“And the tangible result has already been obtained. We have come to understand what needs to be done to build collaboration. The teams ready to start solving concrete industrial tasks posed to the cluster’s companies have been established. In particular, we’ve received concrete proposals in the frame of the production engineering section of the forum while the additive manufacturing section can be looked at as a successful forum on its own, - adds Dmitriy Ivanov, NPO Saturn innovative development director. - The results of the forum participation will be taking form gradually throughout the year. It is crucial that the new projects turn out effective businesswise meaning that they are expected to yield a concrete economic result.”
Summarizing the results of the second international technological forum “Innovations. Technologies. Manufacturing” UEC deputy general director for innovative development and quality Dmitriy Kolodyazhnyi noted: “I greatly appreciate what was done in the course of the forum. It fully corresponds to its original concept, i.e. to create the scientific-technological backlog as seen by UEC. The achievements demonstrated to the forum participants didn’t look like bland presentations, in fact, they contained real value for the corporation. The forum has emerged as a very useful event which I, personally, will fully support and promote. And, I hope that the Rybinsk forum will see its further development and that next time, for its third time, it will bring together even more representatives of the UEC companies.”
In the course of the second international technological forum “Innovations. Technologies. Manufacturing” the winners of the competition “The youth in science” were presented with awards.
Following the 3-day session of the 8th UEC Lean workshop, the Lean department of UEC discerned 5 change leaders: O. Trofimov (Kuznetsov), S. Cherepanov (Aviadvigatel), I. Smirnov (Salut), P. Nesevrya (PMZ) and N. Glivenko (Ikar). Considering the format of the 8th UEC Lean workshop, NPO Saturn being the host of the event, did not participate in that nomination. The high level of organization and execution of the Lean workshop hosted by NPO Saturn was acknowledged. In the “Best project” nomination, the victory went to the project implemented in the NPO Saturn shop 32 titled “Increasing efficiency of the NC-machines area”.
