XM: Extreme MEVA

June 3, 2013 • Written by

MEVA LogoWe are electrified to welcome the Manitoba Electric Vehicle Association (MEVA) as proud sponsor and participant in the WINNISPEED Agile/Scrum Extreme Manufacturing (XM) workshops with Joe Justice on June 10 and 11.

It’s gas! No, it’s electric!

It’s both. The Awsomeness Factor of Agile/Scrum is only part of the WINNISPEED attraction. Because the car we are building with Joe is completely modular, MEVA is intrigued at the prospect of swapping the gas engine module for an electric one. How agile is that?.

We are delighted to welcome CIC as a Friend of WINNISPEED. The Composites Innovation Centre is a not-for-profit Manitoba corporation that is jointly sponsored by private industry and government. Its mandate is to support and stimulate economic growth through innovative research, development and application of composite materials and technologies for manufacturing industries.
