Successful high technology UK manufacturing companies are offering a
range of interlinked high value products and through-life engineering services.
High value products are typically technology intensive, expensive
and reliability critical requiring costeffective and value led services (such as maintenance, repair and overhaul)
throughout the life cycle. The newly formed EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Through-life Engineering Services is delighted
to announce the first International Conference in this vital area.

Through-life Engineering Services typically now generates 50 – 60% of the revenue in
many companies and the opportunities for industry in the future are set to expand and become a
major part of those that want to survive in the 21st Century. The service that is needed will involve manufacturers
taking more whole life service responsibilities than they have in the past as users seek to find solutions to smooth their
in-year costs and reduce overheads. The Conference will bring experts and researchers in this area together to exchange
ideas and progress in providing solutions to provide world-class capability to enable industry to deliver high value
products with outstanding availability, predictability and reliability with the lowest life cycle cost.
