News: Lanner joins AMRC


Lanner, a UK-based provider of predictive simulation technology proven to maximise performance and optimise resources, has joined the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing.

Based on the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Rotherham, the AMRC is a world class centre for advanced machining and materials research for aerospace and other high-value manufacturing sectors. Through its role in the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, it supports growth in the manufacturing sector by helping organisations to incubate and develop new technologies through to commercial reality.

The agreement will see Lanner provide its WITNESS predictive simulation platform for use within AMRC's R&D activities, whilst increasing awareness of the benefits of the software amongst AMRC's 70 member companies.

Lanner's predictive simulation technology allows organisations to harness big data, model complex processes and experiment with business decisions within a risk free, virtual environment. Some of the world's most successful manufacturing companies rely on Lanner simulation software to help improve their productivity. Names like Rolls-Royce, Airbus and BAE Systems use the software to reduce lead times and bottlenecks, increase capacity and reduce operating costs.

Rab Scott, head of simulation and visualisation at the AMRC, said: "We are delighted to welcome Lanner to the AMRC with Boeing. Modelling and simulation are an increasingly important part of 21st century manufacturing, and Lanner's expertise and software allow us to develop simulation models of new processes and facilities and quickly demonstrate their impact on productivity. This lets us demonstrate to our manufacturing partners the potential cost savings that can be achieved through the use of Lanner's software."

David Jones, CEO of Lanner, added: "Continued reports of increased output and upgraded forecasts from manufacturers are hugely encouraging, and are testament to the resilience and innovation demonstrated by the sector.

"Process technologies can substantially improve the way in which organisations operate and service their customers, and we are delighted to be working with such a highly acclaimed organisation to support best practice, and raise awareness of the role predictive simulation can play in driving process innovation in manufacturing."
