What makes MAPI council meetings different?
Roundtable discussions: Rich dialogue on the issues you care about, moderated to keep discussions focused on the “so what”.
Peer to peer sharing: There are no talking heads. Almost all of the content is delivered by your peers at global manufacturers, sharing experiences candidly.
No death by PowerPoint: While our presenters deliver outstanding content, we schedule ample time for interaction and Q&A, so that you can dig deep on the topics that matter.
No pitches: Our council meetings aren’t sponsored, and there are no sales pitches. None.
Balance of strategy and utility: Our council meetings deliver great content around strategy and peer-tested frameworks for putting those strategies into action
Strong and light—that’s what makes Beryllium such a unique metal and particularly useful in making cell phones, cameras, missiles and planes. It’s also naturally occurring and trace amounts can be found in cat litter, fertilizer and even dirt. On January 9, 2017, OSHA finally released a standard for Beryllium. In this session, Materion will share the 10 year journey to develop a collaborative model standard for Beryllium between industry and labor. They will cover the proposed model rule and the published rule, including the change of scope to include maritime and construction. They will also discuss the far-reaching implications for manufacturers in the rule’s current state and the legal challenges filed by industry.

Augmented Reality (AR) & Virtual Reality (VR) are extremely popular with gamers, but their uses go far beyond the gaming industry. Brandt Dargue, Associate Technical Fellow, Boeing Research & Technology (BR&T) Advanced Learning Group, will share how Boeing has been using AR and VR with training, and the factory and engineering design process as well as prototype uses that are currently under development. He will describe the benefits of using AR and VR in these settings, and will provide attendees the opportunity to test out the Microsoft HoloLens virtual reality headset.
Mitch Obradovic from Grace and Carl Schultz from TE Connectivity will share their perspectives on establishing and managing reserves for environmental cleanup sites. The discussion will begin with a brief overview of the companies’ remediation liabilities and their approach to managing their sites, both former company sites and Superfund sites (generator liabilities). Mitch and Carl will then discuss the reserve process and specific issues that arise in that process, including who is involved, when to recognize a liability, how estimates are derived, how to deal with uncertainties and with longer-term O&M obligations, and communications with the finance and management teams.
