Abstract:
This research is designed to discuss the results from a questionnaire which was distributed through the assistance of the Institute of Cast Metal Engineers to various Foundries within the United Kingdom. The questionnaire is designed to ask specific technological foundry based questions surrounding the implementation of Computer Aided Design Engineering tools, Finite Element Analysis, Enterprise Resource Planning, Subcontracting processes, Rapid Prototyping, recycling procedures and lean methodology all in an aid to discover what technologies and methodologies are currently being utilised in the UK foundry industry and also any limitations and barriers surrounding the implemented technologies. This research is to aid the development of a sustainable technology improvement model designed to be introduced into a UK Foundry. The research will examine the benefits achieved through examining technology utilised in other foundries and by examining and cross utilising various technologies and methodologies.
