North East students plug in to Eastern knowledge
EXPERTS from One North East have been working with the next generation of industrial leaders to find out about lean manufacturing.
Engineers from MAS North East added a new dimension to Newcastle University students’ experience with the ‘Plug Game’ which explains the theories based on work at Far Eastern firms like Nissan.
Organiser Chris Bell said: “It is vital for the region’s manufacturing and engineering future that young talent is nurtured. We started the Plug Game almost three years ago and it proved such a huge success it has now become part of the regular training delivered to students on the programme.”
