3:30 pm - 4:10 pm PANEL DISCUSSION: IN COVERSATION WITH THE DRAMA CONSORTIUM & INDUSTRIAL STEERING GROUP

DRAMA (Digital Reconfigurable Additive Manufacturing facilities for Aerospace)
is a three year, £14.3m collaborative research project and part of the UK’s
Aerospace Technology Institute’s (ATIs) programme, which started in November
2017.The project will help build a stronger AM supply chain for UK aerospace by
developing a digital learning factory.
DRAMA Objectives:
• De-risk deployment of AM processes and equipment for the UK aerospace sector
• Reduce the time and cost of planning and validation
• Develop capability across the UK aerospace supply chain
