About us

We are an interdisciplinary team using data, information and knowledge to achieve whole-life value from products, systems and services. Our work spans creativity in the early design stages, creation of new materials and processes, lifecycle, design methods and manufacturing systems. Our aim is to provide governments, manufacturing industries and researchers with innovative methods and tools to maximise value from current and emerging manufacturing technologies.
