Design for transformation
This video explains tools created by the Design Management Group to overcome challenges related to new product introduction. The aim of these tools is to achieve a strategically prioritised portfolio of new products that will be delivered on time, to budget and in demand by the market.
Dr James Moultrie considers how manufacturers could be using these new additive manufacturing technologies more effectively for series production of components.
Additive manufacturing (AM) technologies have resulted in significant changes to the way we design complex components. But the uptake beyond prototyping and small scale production remains slow.
Linde Gases has designed a radical new valve for its gas cylinders, with support from the IfM's Design Management Group and IfM ECS.
James Moultrie, Head the IfM's Design Management Group, argues that good design is just as important for industrial products as it is for consumer goods such as cars and electronics.
James Moultrie looks for universal appeal when beauty in is the eye of the beholder.
