Developing Algorithms for Intelligent Predictive Manufacturing Systems
The project involves developing intelligent algorithms for predictive manufacturing systems applied to shopfloor operations and/or supply chain within a manufacturing enterprise. The aim of the project can be improvements in the relevant Key Performance Indicators such as increase in productivity, decrease in manufacturing cost, or for example creating intelligent platforms such as predictive maintenance. The research may include, but not limited to, the development of ontology engineering and semantic web, agent-based systems, multi agent systems, holonic manufacturing systems, machine learning, and cloud manufacturing. The project is supported by industrial companies providing real industrial data and case studies.
For excellent applicants (very good first degree), there is the potential for funding for Home (UK) / EU students that will cover fees and a stipend of £14,400 un-taxed. Overseas students are welcome to apply but should note that they will be required to be either completely self-funding, or if awarded a scholarship, they should be able to pay for their living expenses.
