Participation in the network costs 5000 DKK annually and each member company can register two participants (when registering two participants, the second participant will get a 50% discount). It is a requirement to be a member of DWIA but it is possible to participate for free once. As the network is open to all members of DWIA, meetings with competing companies, participating at equal terms, can and will occur.
Inspiration from the automotive industry
The costs in the automotive industry has declined over the years. One reason for this is the increased focus on quality standards across the supply chain. The wind industry has a strong focus on reducing 'levelized cost of energy' (LCoE), and therefore it is natural to seek inspiration in an industry that succeeded in bringing down costs.
APQP4WIND is inspired by the American quality management tool "Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP)”, which was originally developed for the US automotive industry. APQP is a recognized standardization tool focusing on production processes and quality assurance. It can be used to systematically reduce production-related defects in the final product (the wind turbine), before components, subsystems and the finished product leave the factory.
If you or your company have an interest in more information about the network, or how to participate, feel free to contact Kim Nedergaard Jacobsen.
