Research Project


Big data is increasingly available in all areas of manufacturing and operations. Data as such presents value for enabling a competitive, data-driven economy (EPSRC’s Delivery Plan 2016 “Connectedness”), which is at the heart of the Internet of things and Industry 4.0. Increased data availability presents potential value for better decision making and strategy development, to introduce the next generation of innovative and disruptive technologies and drive business innovation through digital transformation (EPSRC’s Area of “Connected Nation”). While IP data is abundantly available and tools have been developed to run the analytics, for many manufacturing firms it still remains a problem how they can create value from IP data (Cambridge Big Data Initiative – “Making Big Data Work” theme). This project aims to contribute to solving this problem: How can UK manufacturing firms better create value from IP data (understand, incorporate, link and develop a framework), and help them in making decisions about emerging technologies, innovation and technology development projects (EPSRC’s Area of “Manufacturing the Future”)? This project will help UK based firms to strengthen their IP management and IP analytics capabilities, hence to improve productivity and value creation in the UK.
