Focus: “we run our company the TOC Way” – Aerosud Aviation

Johan Steyn, Managing Director of Aerosud Aviation, wanted to share during this conference the progress initiative implemented within Aerosud.

Aerosud Aviation, situated in Pretoria in South Africa, employs over 600 people in Commercial Aircraft parts Design and Manufacture for the likes of Boeing and Airbus. 
The company holds AS9100 rev D, EASA and several Nadcap approvals, and have skills in advanced manufacturing, composites, 3D printing and complex assembly processes. 

He illustrates in a very practical way the different interventions that was initiated, as well as the multi-disciplinary nature of a good integrated solution – with information on external Supply chain, Internal Production management, sub-tier management, Critical chain project management and people management. 

The presentation addresses very little theory, but focusses on what was done – and also how it was done.  The most significant “discoveries” along the way was related to Logical Thinking and Inspiring and Managing people.
