Investing in advanced manufacturing systems and technology enables industry to progress and face unprecedented situations. This has been evident during the coronavirus pandemic and the World Economic Forum (2020) identified companies who invested in this technology were more able to: Adapt quickly to the current crisis, flip to new business opportunities and support Governments through the pandemic. Ensure business resilience through the use of advanced manufacturing technologies. Readily support safe COVID-19 manufacturing practices. Shift happens, and result change is inevitable, therefore it is necessary for the industry to transform and adopt Industry 4.0 and 5.0 practices and technologies to alleviate COVID-19 impact on the manufacturing sector globally The Advanced Manufacturing Systems & Technology provides postgraduate provision that supports professional learning to support industries shift to advanced manufacturing as this is evidently the answer to supporting and accelerating the long-term economic recovery of industry to full capacity manufacture. The MSc has the potential to support engineering enterprise and regional businesses recovery from two factors BREXIT and COVID-19.
- On-shoring manufacturing in the UK reduces the complexity and cost of the BREXIT trade deal with the EU and the rules of origin.
- Reduces costs now associated with importing manufactured goods from China, the result of disruption to manufacturing and shipping due to COVID-19.
- Advanced manufacturing operations assist in resolving the challenges of implementing social distance shift patterns without additional costs; staffing and other overhead constraints of diversified industrial sectors (local and global).
