Irish Centre for Manufacturing Research


Manufacturing data can provide insights into products and processes if harnessed correctly that can help drive improved decision making, enhanced process control and increased productivity.

Manufacturing Informatics is concerned with the methods and techniques for Capturing Data, Data Analysis and Data Visualisation that can help realise these improvements.

In partnership with our industrial collaborators, we have identified opportunities to make better use of advanced manufacturing data, both at the Big Data and the Small Data scale.

Our current research projects include:
