About the Project
CONTEXT: Engineering products are typically overdesigned relative to their minimum requirements. The amount of overdesign is described as "margin". Margin helps to ensure a product or system will operate safely and reliably despite uncertainties (e.g. in manufacture and use) and also allows a design to be more easily adapted to changing needs. Margin is therefore desirable and necessary, but at the same time, too much (or inappropriately placed) margin deteriorates design performance, for instance increasing weight and/or cost of a product. This excess margin can be eliminated.
You will join the Design and Development Research Group where a number of PhD students are working on related topics.
