  An investigation of the role of Lean Six Sigma (LSS) application for manufacturing and service SMEs to develop the regional powerhouse (SF18/BAM/SHOKRI)
  Dr A Shokri
Applications accepted all year round
This project investigates the benefits, limitations, effectiveness and implications of establishing a business excellence strategy and tool amongst Small to Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in relation to meeting the objectives of the development of the regional powerhouse.
  Lean and agile construction - understanding the origins of flow management in a manufacturing setting
  Dr R Stratton
Applications accepted all year round
The Toyota Production System (TPS) introduced a paradigm shift in thinking to automotive manufacture (Womack et al., 1990) that has since been applied to more complex flow environments including healthcare and construction under the label ‘lean’.
  Applying Lean Techniques to Patient Flow using Stochastic Modelling
  Dr M Latif
Applications accepted all year round
Reference Number. ML-2018-PhD-1. Project Summary. This research project explores the use and development of an integrated simulation model for the study of patient flow in hospitals and its dynamic effects on staffing, patients, and resources.
  Continental weathering and secular evolution of redox-sensitive isotope systematics
  Dr M Andersen, Dr M A Millet
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The weathering of continental crust is a major driver of Earth’s climate. It helps regulate atmospheric CO2 content as well as provides soluble ions to the oceans.
