Made to order: a journey towards automated mass-customisation
With diverse case-studies including healthcare, electronics, offsite-construction and shipbuilding; this talk explores the benefits from making products on-demand at near mass production efficiency. Could a future of lower energy and material consumption, production closer to the consumer, and increased modularity and personalisation be possible?
Each of these products currently requires the input of a designer or engineer during the sales or manufacturing processes, making it difficult to increase the scale of production and risking stoppages. Pete will also explore how his own journey from simulation and optimisation in F1 to software for manufacturing has impacted this vision.
