Attendees of the first, U.K. event took the 2-day, high-level program of MES/MOM Business Functions courses geared for executives, manufacturing/operations, IT personnel and sales professionals.  All are eligible to earn the MESA Certificate of Awareness, given they pass both the in-class and post-class exams.  Jonathon Hill, MES Capabilities Leader with a major Aerospace OEM, is the first to do so, earning Certificate No. 1 in the MESA Global Education Program.

Mr. Hill commented, "This is the most comprehensive set of courses I have ever followed, providing a full and broad understanding of Manufacturing Execution Systems / Manufacturing Operations Management.
