Paul Davies joined the ASTUTE project team at Cardiff University as a Project Officer in November 2012. ASTUTE - Advanced SusTainable manUfacturing TEchnologies – is a major £27million, five year initiative, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund through Welsh government. It offers manufacturers in the Convergence area the opportunity to collaborate with leading academic and industry experts in the Schools of Engineering and Business, helping them toward long term sustainability through the implementation of advanced technologies and improved business processes.
Prior to working on the ASTUTE project, Paul enjoyed a career in electronics and test engineering and has 25 years experience in manufacturing and product development. Previously, he worked for Panasonic System Networks for over 20 years, leading a multi-disciplined team which helped establish the company as a successful development centre for a wide range of telecommunications products. Paul has project management experience of the whole development cycle from cradle to grave and knowledge transfer leading to the successfully introduced of many new models.
Paul is particularly interested in using his experience to help companies with their product development and process improvement activities.
