Research Interests

Professor Andrew Graves is a mechanical engineer and political scientist. His involvement with Formula 1 & 2 motor racing led to early research affiliations with MIT’s International Motor Vehicle Programme.Since moving to Bath in 1994 he has set up research programmes into LEAN & AGILE MANUFACTURING (pioneered by the Toyota Production System). Key projects include: 

ILIPT (Intelligent Logistics for Innovative Product Technologies)/5DayCar - this EU project collaborated with 30 leading European automotive suppliers to focus on optimising performance throughout the supply chain, linking with Bath’s earlier concept work on the 3DayCar programme
Agile Construction Initiative (ACI) - a project focusing on benchmarking performance improvement within the construction industry. Sponsors of the project have included - HM Treasury, Highways Agency, Balfour Beatty, Geoffrey Osborne, Atkins Global, Carillion and Lafarge. 

Lean Aerospace Initiative – this research comes from a long association with MIT’sLean Aerospace Initiative (LAI) and a recent partnership with the Lean Flight Initiative (LFI), aims to develop Lean principles among aircraft operators, expanding research into commercial airline operations.
