    Abstract

    Supported by the EPSRC institutional sponsorship, three workshops were held in order to create a roadmap for future research in the field of smart products through-life. During the workshops a variety of different activities were undertaken by participants from 13 UK universities with expertise in various fields to explore the requirements and challenges relating to smart products-through life. These disciplines included: artificial intelligence, control engineering, knowledge management, manufacturing engineering, material sciences, smart product design, and the supply chain. The outputs are published in this report and are focused on Industry 4.0/Digital manufacturing and Smart Products
