21 Oct Industrial Systems: capturing value through manufacturing
Irish Academy of Engineering (IAE) 2012
This report seeks to make a contribution to the promotion of a broader view of the value of manufacturing and the industrial systems in which it operates We hope that this will, in turn, help stimulate new opportunities for capturing economic value. As part of our project, we undertook an extensive review of the literature with the help of the Institute of Manufacturing in Cambridge, which produced a background analysis to further our understanding. We undertook face-to-face structured interviews with 18 senior business and academic leaders, both to influence the initial scope of the study and inform its final content.
