Experts in design and optimization of electromechanical systems and processes
The Advanced Manufacturing Processes and Mechatronics Centre (AMPMC) brings together the Centre for Manufacturing (CfM) and Mechatronics Research Group (MRG) which includes lean engineering, additive manufacturing and mechatronics.
Areas of expertise include:
- Design, implementation and sustainment of lean 6-sigma practices
- Work systems improvement using discrete event simulation
- Creative problem solving
- Application of artificial intelligence modelling to improve operations planning and scheduling
Collectively the Centre has an international reputation for its development of novel additive manufacturing technology (AMT) processes, its research in the domain of computer controlled machines as well as systems architectures and engineering. Projects are funded by a range of agencies including EPSRC, DTI/TSB , EMDA , the European Union, TCS and the Royal Society.
