As delivered recently to the R & D Society in London. Professor Gregory’s talk focuses on the renewed interest in the role of manufacturing in the economy. Traditionally manufacturing research has tended to focus on elements of the activity such as production technology or operations research. Professor Gregory will argue that the modern integrated definition of manufacturing which includes the whole value chain from marketing to service requires a more integrated approach to research. He will argue that thinking about innovation and manufacturing in the broader sense can reveal the potential of manufacturing to enhance economic performance. Finally he will argue for the importance of understanding dynamics of emerging industries so that the UK’s R&D capability can be more rapidly and fully exploited.
