Launch of the EEMUA Portal

As Project Manager for the new EEMUA Portal, I want to welcome you to its first – and EEMUA’s first – blog post. We’ll be blogging quite regularly on topics of interest to members, but to start at the beginning, here is a whistle stop tour of the Portal itself. Blogs are just...

Ageing Assets

We all get old. It’s something I’m reminded of every day. I’m sure the clicking of my knees as I get out of bed gets louder every morning. The process of ageing isn’t restricted to people either. Our cat, once a highly effective mouser, now spends most of its time sleeping, ...

“There’s a great future in plastics”

A sad loss in 2014 was the death on 19 November of Mikhail Igor Peschkowsky. Better known as Mike Nichols, he was a comedian who became a notable director, winning an Academy Award for the cult film “The Graduate” in 1967. As an incorrigible engineer, the thing that always st...

Taking stock at Collaborate 2015

As if I need to tell you that this is the age of social networking, instant updates and 24/7 communications. So much for the halcyon days of early computing, when those futurologists thought the main challenge facing us by now would be what to do with our leisure time! Again...

Several weeks on from Collaborate 2015 , the dust has settled on the event, so it feels like a good time to review the various workshops and presentations with a mechanical theme. I’d like to repeat EEMUA’s thanks to the member company participants that led those sessions fo...

Making the most of the EEMUA Portal

They say that “to stand still is to fall behind”* but as I leave EEMUA at the end of May 2015 for adventures in Australia, I would like to take the risk of pausing for the length of this blog to reflect on one of the many changes that has occurred within EEMUA over the last c...
