News: Resource Efficient Remanufacturing Project – partners required
Industrial partners are needed for a project to be undertaken by Dr.Qing Wang of Durham University School of Engineering and Professor David Stockton from the Centre for Manufacturing, De Montfort University.
Monday, 4th August 2008
This project aims to provide a significant increase in the level of decision support provided during the remanufacturing planning process that facilitates step improvements in the resource efficiency, lead time and throughput. It will also develop methods for generating estimates of the work content for individual cores. These methods will require identifying: • The causal relationships between ‘service usage conditions’ and ‘states and levels of wear of individual components’ • The causal relationships between ‘states and levels of wear of individual components’ and an ‘individual component’s required remanufacturing resources. Further details of the project may be downloaded from this page. If you are interested in participating please email Dr Wang with 'EPSRC Joint Research Proposal' in the subject field.
