Advanced manufacturing & materials Engineering design

Engineering design is a fundamental driver for value creation within the Advanced Manufacturing and Materials theme.  This involves using tools, methods and creative thinking for oprimising products, processes, services and systems.

This requires focusing on the entire lifecycle design process to manage the creation of efficient, resilient, sustainable and high performing products.  Design for Excellence is a key enabler for considering through life requirements within the design process.  We consider the partnerships and relatiopnships between people, process, products and technology to deliver innovative user-centred solutions for the future.

Engineering design provides the means of addressing and embracing new technology challenges associated with the drive towards smarter and more competitive solutions.

Engineering design applies to all industrial sectors and we work with organisations of all sizes, from SMEs to large multinationals.
