Putting ASEAN Aerospace Industry on the next level through Certification
Mr. Ros Oh, Sales, Business Development Manager for region South East AsiaDNV GL - Business Assurance, Singapore
Organizations often find it challenging to demonstrate their standard of quality of their products and services to interested parties such as their customers. However achieving certification on their quality systems provides an assurance to their customers that the quality systems not only meets internally accepted and recognized standards such as AS9100 / AS9110 / AS 9120; but also passed the certification process assessed by an external 3rd party Certification bodies. In this session, we would discuss other benefits, the success factors as well as the steps towards achieving certification, to bring aerospace industry to the next level.

Advanced Aero Engines. From the smallest to the biggest
Mr. Sergiy Dmytriyev, Department Manager, Ivchenko-Progress SE
The “Scientific Production Association “A. Ivchenko” Corporation (NPO A.IVCHENKO Corporation) was founded in 2007 by uniting the aero-engines designers and manufacturers - “Ivchenko-Progress” SE (http://www.mivchenko-progress.com) and “Motor Sich” JSC (http://www.motorsich.com) of Ukraine.
The sphere of the Corporation activities: design, manufacture, test, development, certification, series production and overhaul of gas turbine engines both of aviation and industrial application (gas-turbine drives and power-generating plants, consumer goods).
The rights for designing, manufacturing, overhauling and upgrading the engines of both enterprises are confirmed by more than 75 certificates of Bureau Veritas, European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), Central Civil Aviation Administration of China, IAC AR and GosAviaSluzhba of Ukraine.
The aero-engines developed by Ivchenko-Progress SE and produced by Motor Sich JSC today are used for powering 60 types of aircraft and helicopters in more than 100 countries of the world. The total operating time of the gas turbine engines in service makes up more than 300 million hours.

The aerospace industry in South East Asia - Australia's experience in accessing complex value chains
Mr. Joel Backwell, Australian, Trade CommissionerAustralian Trade Commission (Austrade)
Australian companies have significant expertise in advanced manufacturing, composite materials, research and development, radar technology, pilot and aerospace engineer training and MRO capabilities. Our aerospace industry has also operated for a long time in a cost constrained, challenging and competitive environment. Therefore we are well placed to work with other aerospace companies in the Asian region to share our expertise and find ways to jointly access complex value chains and leverage the growing opportunities of an increasingly wealthy and increasingly mobile regional population. Through my presentation I will be sharing these Australian experiences and outlining areas of potential collaboration with key players in the aerospace industry in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and the rest of South East Asia.
