Making use of the technology to improve your business is the focus of the first Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders/DTI e-Business seminar in Coventry on February 13, 2001.
'E-Business in the Motor Industry' at the Coventry University Technology Centre will explore the key developments from compoment design to vehicle manufacturing and supply by questioning the relevance of each for the motor industry, providing the opportunity for manufacturers and component suppliers to debate the issues in an open forum.
"The greatest opportunity to cut costs, improve productivity and reduce delivery times for the motor industry lies beneath our fingertips," said Christopher Macgowan, SMMT chief executive.
"The challenge for the whole industry is to get to grips with the potential opportunities offered by the new technology and then find the right partner to make it work within each business." Details of the seminar programme can be found at www.smmt.co.uk
