System and Circular Design


Every new product, service or system that we design to serve our needs impact in one way or another on people’s lives, the health and wealth of our societies, and the planet. Yet we tend to design new products without thinking how to positively impact the larger systems at play. Consequently we end up with many by-products that negatively affect us. The extent to which this occurs depends primarily on the intentions and the decisions of designers, and manufacturers.

 In the System and Circular Design theme, investigators use system thinking, system engineering, optimisation and ML techniques to understand how to design and manage systems to address issues such as upgradability, flexibility, circularity, sustainability uncertainty and resilience.

 These activities focus on a wide range of applications including, for example, manufacturing, logistics and consumption systems, and aerospace, energy, civil infrastructure and financial systems. We work closely with small and medium enterprises, large corporations, government organisations and consumer groups.
