To deliver capability operationally, manufacturing technologies must be considered in relation to the wider economic, societal and through-life systems they are part of. The earlier the systems effects can be understood and modelled, the more efficient and effective the process of implementation is likely to be and the better the performance we can expect.
Managing the implementation of manufacturing technology at both strategic and operational levels requires a multi-disciplinary approach coupling technical and business systems knowledge.
Academics from across Strathclyde work together (including through the Strathclyde Institute for Operations Management) to deliver best practice and innovative solutions for research programmes and industrial challenges.
