Supply chain consulting & training

NDI provides intelligence-led business opportunities to our members. In addition, we understand the requirement for companies to continually organise and train in order to compete in the market place. This often involves learning and thorough preparation in business disciplines which are new or unfamiliar. To help achieve this, NDI provides a series of business support services to help members operate effectively across defence, aerospace, space and security.

Using the additional resources of EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, and third party specialists, we are able to offer access to a range of experts who can advise and offer practical tutoring in the following areas:




SC21 Support & Cluster Forum

A particular area of expertise is our support for members aiming for Supply Chain 21 (SC21) accreditation. SC21 is a continuous improvement programme that sets out to achieve excellence in quality, service delivery and productivity across defence and aerospace. It is an internationally recognised mark of achievement and a potential market differentiator for those looking for new supply chain partners.   

Our SC21 Cluster comprises a group of non-competing companies – who are already engaged in the SC21 process and meet on a regular basis to share best practices.

Features of the Cluster include:

  • Opportunities to be part of a facilitated discussion on a particular aspect or issue within SC21

  • Obtaining more business through the SC21 framework

  • Sharing ideas on evolving SC21 in different businesses

  • Providing motivation and ideas for the implementation of SC21 in your business

  • Access to specialists who can provide advice in all aspects of SC21 and continuous improvement
