Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The globalisation of manufacturing industries leads to a thirst for rapid advancements in technological development and expertise in the fields of advanced design and manufacturing, as it poses a number of new challenges to both multi-national companies as well as for companies, especially small to medium sized enterprises (SME), relying on an independent supply chain. In this context, both industry and the academia have an urgent need to equip themselves of latest knowledge, understanding, tools and techniques developed for design and manufacture for this new paradigm.
