Welcome to the Digital Lifecycle Management group page. The DLM group, headed by Professor Darek Ceglarek, conducts manufacturing systems research aimed at integrating products, processes and complex services with system design to create novel closed-loop production systems for “Factories-of-the-Future,” with capabilities to self-recover from product failures and changes.
The Digital Lifecycle Management group entails four major research tracks: Digital Design & Manufacturing; Process Monitoring; Process Control; and Industrial Systems. Read more about our research here.
Our research facilities are split into two categories: In-process Part Quality Monitoring and In-process Part Joining Monitoring. Read more about our facilities here.
Encouraging lateral thinking, and pushing the boundaries of what is possible, we create an environment that inspires confidence and creativity. Through our diverse projects we have a real impact on economic growth, society, and the environment. To find out more about out success stories click here.
The RLW project is aimed at developing an engineering platform for emerging joining technology from the automotive industry, Remote Laser Welding (RLW).
Other projects include the Chamaeleon project, Best Care, Anywhere: Integrating Primary Care in Coventry programme, and the In-process Quality Improvement (IPQI) project.
The researchers in our group have published numerous papers, with their research activity spanning over 20 years. Explore the myriad of publications here.
Download our Fixture Analyser & Optimiser (v4.4), a tool which offers the possibility to evaluate and optimise assembly fixtures. Take a look at its benefits and video materials of it in action here.
Take a look at research posters designed by our researchers and engineers. The posters are split into two categories: the Digital Design & Manufacturing Track, and the Process Monitoring & Control Track.
