  System Dynamics Modelling: Simulation and Analysis of Manufacturing Processes


   Department of Mechanical Engineering

   Applications accepted all year round  Self-Funded PhD Students Only

About the Project

The aim of this PhD is to optimise current manufacturing processes. Processes may be simulated by means of systems thinking/dynamics (SD). SD is supported by simulation software such as STELLA or VENSIM which will be used in this project. The main objective of this project will be to model a to-be-chosen manufacturing process with relevant variables (to be investigated) and analyse the prospective outcome after having "trained" the model with current data. In view of the outcome, there will be the possibility of proposing key decisions for the optimisation and improvement of the process.

 Requirements: 1st or 2:1 degree in Engineering, Materials Science, Physics, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics, or other Relevant Discipline.
