About DigitME2 : Process

Once eligibility has been confirmed and a registration form has been completed, the process follows the format below.

INITIAL MEETING

An initial visit* is carried out by our Business Development Officer. This helps to form the basis of a technical assessment which details the company’s current position for digital manufacturing, and helps to identify where the technologies and processes being researched and developed by DigitME2, can assist in improving the productivity and advancement of the SME.

*During Covid-19 this visit will be replaced by an online meeting.

THE PROJECT

The next stage of the assist is to define the project which will be carried out on behalf of your company. Once outlined, the project team will take the concept through to feasibility stage. This may involve work within the ADMT Lab, the development of prototype software and/or initial testing within production systems.

COMPLETION

On completion the DigitME2 team will hand over work developed in the feasibility study. This work can then be trialled by the company for further integration into the manufacturing environment.

CONTINUATION

The university seeks to develop long term relationships with local SMEs. On completion of the funded assistance the university will offer a number of methods for continuation, for what will hopefully be, a successful partnership.
