About the Project

The focus of this project is to develop and demonstrate, in a realistic factory environment, highly automated and flexible manufacturing solutions that deliver a step increase in productivity of high-value manufacturing and assembly.

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.
