Abstract

The development of advanced material requires much more than purely technical knowledge. This paper presents a socio-technical analysis of industrial capability issues for composites material product. The central idea behind this work is to provide a framework to identify and examine important growth drivers in composites. Composites are engineered materials, made from a combination of constituent materials with different properties, and find applications in a variety of business sectors and contribute towards a sustainable economy. The main goal of this paper is to shed some light on how the composites industry could accelerate production rates, meet demands for sophisticated products in high volumes and reach advanced levels of industrialisation.
