Exploring the challenges & opportunities to move to scaled-up manufacturing

Advanced Engineering taking place from Wednesday 30th October to Thursday 31st October in Birmingham will showcase the latest advances in engineering, converging innovations, latest developments and vital information driving efficiency and profitability to enable UK manufacturers to compete and grow in a global market.

Now in its 10th year, Advanced Engineering attracts OEMs and supply chain partners spanning design, test, measurement, inspection, production, and assembly across key sectors such as aerospace, automotive, civil, rail, and transport.

Dr Abi Hird from the KTN Manufacturing team is speaking at the Connected Manufacturing Forum at Advanced Engineering 2019, exploring the support KTN provides to help innovators to manufacture. Making the leap to full commercialisation of a hardware product demands a set of skills, knowledge and capabilities quite different to those required to realise the product innovation as a prototype. This includes understanding the market opportunity, Design for Manufacture, securing investment, developing manufacturing strategy, building a supply chain and distribution network, protecting IP and demonstrating compliance with quality standards.  A recent blog written by Abi explores this area in more depth.

As part of her talk, Abi will be discussing the challenges and opportunities for innovators looking to move from prototype to small batch to scaled-up manufacturing. What challenges do you face as an innovator? What services and support can you offer innovators looking to manufacture?
