PRATT & WHIT­NEY LAUNCHES IN­DUS­TRY CA­PA­BIL­ITY EN­HANCE­MENT PRO­GRAM

SP's Aviation - - NEWS -

Pratt & Whit­ney launched its In­dus­try Ca­pa­bil­ity En­hance­ment pro­gram to sup­port medium and small scale en­ter­prises serv­ing global aero­space ma­jors through pre­ci­sion man­u­fac­tur­ing and highly spe­cial­ized engi­neer­ing ser­vices from In­dia. As part of this unique pro­gram to en­hance In­dia’s avi­a­tion ecosys­tem, Pratt & Whit­ney is or­ga­niz­ing a spe­cial train­ing ses­sion, launch­ing with its sup­pli­ers Bel­can and QuEST Global Engi­neer­ing Ser­vices Pvt. Ltd., at its Hy­der­abad train­ing cen­ter. Pratt & Whit­ney re­in­forces its com­mit­ment to the In­dian gov­ern­ment’s “Skill In­dia” and “Make in In­dia” ini­tia­tives, which will pro­vide fur­ther im­pe­tus to the growth of avi­a­tion sec­tor in In­dia.

The In­dus­try Ca­pa­bil­ity En­hance­ment pro­gram has been spe­cially de­signed to help in­dus­try par­tic­i­pants de­velop ex­per­tise on air­craft propul­sion sys­tems and iden­tify ways to im­prove pro­duc­tiv­ity while meet­ing qual­ity goals,and plan for scal­a­bil­ity thus en­sur­ing more ef­fi­cient, reli­able and cost-ef­fec­tive sup­ply base. It will equip po­ten­tial sup­pli­ers by pro­vid­ing ex­po­sure to aero­space re­quire­ments and an un­der­stand­ing of qual­ity re­quire­ments within their ex­ist­ing sys­tems.

Speak­ing about the launch Palash Roy Chowdhury, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Pratt & Whit­ney, UTC In­dia, said “Pratt & Whit­ney is com­mit­ted to work­ing to­wards the growth of the aero­space and avi­a­tion sec­tors in In­dia. Sup­port­ing the staff from lo­cal aero­space in­dus­tries through spe­cial­ized train­ing pro­grams would go a long way in cat­alyz­ing the growth of the sec­tor in In­dia.”

Amit Pathak, Gen­eral Man­ager, Cus­tomer Train­ing, Pratt & Whit­ney, In­dia, said “We are very ex­cited about the op­por­tu­nity to of­fer this unique pro­gram for the ben­e­fit of the lo­cal aero­space sup­ply base in In­dia. The pro­gram cur­ricu­lum has been spe­cially de­signed in con­sul­ta­tion with the lo­cal in­dus­try and we look for­ward to ex­pand­ing this pro­gram to ben­e­fit many more com­pa­nies go­ing for­ward.”

Naveen Mun­nangi, Gen­eral Man­ager, Bel­can In­dia Tech­nol­ogy Cen­ter, said, “We are look­ing for­ward to uti­lize this op­por­tu­nity to in­crease our team’s do­main ex­per­tise, which will help us en­hance our value cre­ation for UTC. This unique pro­gram pro­vides ac­cess to en­gine hard­ware and hands-on train­ing, which will be highly ben­e­fi­cial for all par­ties in­volved.”

Key Ben­e­fits of the Ca­pa­bil­ity En­hance­ment pro­gram are : - ri­enced fac­ulty, state of the art in­struc­tion aids, spe­cial­ized tool­ing and au­dio vis­ual teach­ing aids in­clud­ing vir­tual re­al­ity (VR) tech­nol­ogy.

- nent iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, dis­as­sem­bly and as­sem­bly.

- ments and pro­cesses. work­place safety and best prac­tices.

P&W has made sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ments in es­tab­lish­ing a world class train­ing cen­ter in Hy­der­abad. The cen­ter is equipped with three air­craft en­gines in­clud­ing the lat­est state of art Geared Tur­bo­fan tech­nol­ogy (GTF) en­gine and as­so­ci­ated tool­ing. The cen­ter is also equipped with VR-based sys­tems to sup­port train­ing.

Pratt & Whit­ney has long sup­ported the ad­vance­ment of science, tech­nol­ogy, engi­neer­ing and math­e­mat­ics (STEM), with 60+ e-Learn­ing Cen­ters es­tab­lished in In­dia since 2011. P&W re­cently in­au­gu­rated two e-learn­ing cen­ters and an­other 25 e-learn­ing cen­ters are planned to open by the end of 2019. The Hy­der­abad train­ing cen­ter has been at the fore­front of driv­ing avi­a­tion skill devel­op­ment pro­grams in the coun­try. In part­ner­ship with state gov­ern­ments and lead­ing uni­ver­si­ties, col­leges, the cen­tre has suc­cess­fully con­ducted spe­cial­ized short-term train­ing pro­gram for the ben­e­fit of the fac­ulty and stu­dents, thereby sup­port­ing the devel­op­ment of skilled tal­ent pool for the growth of the in­dus­try in In­dia.
