What's new at the IfM - December - Latest from the Centre for International Manufacturing
These are interesting times for global manufacturers. At our recent annual Cambridge International Manufacturing Symposium, we learnt first-hand from companies such as Cisco, Jaguar Land Rover and Schneider Electric about the radical transformations they are undergoing as they move towards increasingly connected, smarter, digitally-enabled supply chains.
Which means these are also exciting times for the IfM’s Centre for International Manufacturing as our research programme responds to the design challenges inherent in these ‘next-generation’ supply chains. We are also leading the research for the UK government and industry-funded project, REMEDIES, which aims to tackle inefficiencies in the UK’s pharmaceutical supply chain and enable it to take full advantage of emerging technologies. Meanwhile, we continue to put our research into practice with a number of multinational companies - helping them achieve competitive advantage through their production and supply networks.
