Meet the USW Team
The ASTUTE 2020+ team at the University of South Wales (USW) comprises of Professor Hefin Rowlands, Professor Jonathan Deacon, Steffan James and Carl Singleton. The team provides a unique mix of skills that complement those of the other academic partners in ASTUTE 2020+.
The team has expertise in Quality improvement, the Taguchi Design of Experiments method, strategic supply chain management and developing strong supplier relationships and the ability to provide a human-centric focus to achieve a more market-oriented product.
The team at the University of South Wales (USW) has expertise in techniques used to optimise manufacturing processes to increase resource efficiency and, potentially, transform waste resources into new products. Coupled with the team’s expertise in marketing, collaborative projects with USW can help manufacturers find new markets for products previously considered waste. Many previous ASTUTE 2020+ collaborative projects have researched potential methods of maintaining value in supply chains through the valorisation of waste products from existing processes. This creates sustainable models of manufacturing, delivering economic, environmental, and social benefits for companies in Wales.
