PhD student conducts research with PSS

 

We were recently delighted to welcome Okechukwu Okorie – a PhD student from Cranfield University – to our facilities. Okechukwu is researching the ‘circular economy’ where manufactured products are remanufactured and used again to reduce costs and conserve energy & resources.

As leaders in UK remanufacturing, Andrew Brammer and our team were delighted to show Okechukwu around our operations and explain how we return used components to OE condition for further use.

Okechukwu advised us our collaboration was extremely useful in providing insight into remanufacturing operations, how industry-wide improvements could be captured and providing important data for his research.

We’d like to wish Okechukwu the very best of luck with his doctorate and the three resulting academic papers. His research is partially funded by the EPSRC Connected Everything Network and supported by Dr Kostantinos Salonitis and Dr Fiona Charnley of Cranfield University.
