Following the success of the 2019 pilot programme developed by Creative United in partnership with The OHMI Trust and the Nottingham Music Education Hub, this project will focus on the challenge of building an effective national supply chain of adaptive musical instruments and assistive equipment to meet the needs of disabled children attending mainstream schools across the country.
Could existing supply chains be flexed to include the provision of adaptive instruments and assistive equipment?
What proportion of the potential demand could be met through a fixed range of ‘standard issue’products designed for this market?
How can we build a cost effective and efficient means of responding to the needs of disabled children who need a more specialist/bespoke solution?
What kind of infrastructure is needed to establish an effective supply chain on a nation-wide basis?
Visualisation of existing/typical supply chains and stock control systems in use by schools and music education hubs across England
Identification of standardized products that could potentially meet the needs of a significant proportion of the anticipated demand
Design concept for a supply chain and stock control system for the management of adaptive instruments and assistive equipment for use by schools and music education hubs
