This project will focus on new digital approaches to improve the design and operations of factories.
These will support the technology developments and research projects carried out under the Airbus / Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) Research Chair in Digitisation for Manufacturing based at the University of Sheffield. This project theme will be undertaken in collaboration with Airbus UK and the internationally renowned University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) including the AMRC’s £43 million state-of-the-art ‘Factory 2050’ - the UK’s first fully reconfigurable assembly and component manufacturing research facility.
