Dr Tariq Masood

Senior Research Associate

Asset Management, Distributed Information and Automation Laboratory, Research Capability Development Programme

 

Dr Tariq Masood joined DIAL in October 2012 as a research associate working on research projects related to whole life management of infrastructure assets and future proofing infrastructure – long term resilient data storage and provision in large scale infrastructure.

 

Background


Dr Tariq Masood has gained his PhD in Reconfigurable Manufacturing Enterprises from Loughborough University, where he was part of the Manufacturing System Integration Research (MSI) Institute. Dr Tariq Masood has recently worked as a Knowledge Transfer Partnership Associate at the Manufacturing & Materials Department of Cranfield University, while based at Rolls-Royce, Derby. During this KTP, Tariq led the development of next generation global service knowledge backbone to establish feedback to product design, manufacture and engineering services so that operational disruption and maintenance costs are reduced at earlier product lifecycle stages. While based at Rolls-Royce, Tariq collaborated with global Rolls-Royce stakeholders mainly in USA, Canada, Germany and the UK across civil aerospace, defence, energy and marine sectors. He also facilitated a global community of practice on Design for Service within Rolls-Royce and supported other communities of practice on turbines, controls, oil systems and knowledge management. As part of the KTP role, Tariq also supervised demonstrator application development work of a small team of programmers/analysts based at different sites of Rolls-Royce globally. Tariq has also worked at UK Centre of Excellence in Customised Assembly (CECA) of Loughborough University, where he worked on digital modelling of cooperating hexapod robots for aerospace applications. During his time at Loughborough University, Tariq has collaborated with Ford Motor Company, ACM Bearings Ltd, Bradgate Furniture Ltd, Physik Instumente (PI), Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (and Rolls-Royce Factory of the Future) of Sheffield University and Precision Machining Centre of Nottingham University. Prior to this, he has worked for six years in industrial environments related to advance machining, bi-axially oriented polypropylene film (BOPP) production and maintenance. Tariq also has a few years experience of university level teaching and supervision in advance machining, computer aided design/manufacturing, production planning and control, quality management systems and graphical communication.

 

For nearly a decade, Tariq has been involved in scientific committee work of various international conferences mainly organised by:

  • IEEE – The Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers, USA;
  • IMechE – The Institution of Mechanical Engineers, UK
  • IASTED – The International Association of Science and Technology for Development, Canada;
  • ASME – The American Society of Mechanical Engineers;
  • CIRP – The International Academy for Production Engineering (or The College
  • International pour la Recherche en Productique), and
  • UN - The United Nations.


Tariq has delivered keynote speeches and chaired technical sessions during international conferences. He is a reviewer of the International Journal of Computer Intergrated Manufacturing, Proceedings of the IMechE,  Part B: Journal of Engineering Manufacture and Part G: Journal of Aerospace Engineering. He is also a member of the IMechE, the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC).
