Professor Chris McMahon

Research in Engineering Design

Chris's research interests are in engineering design, especially concerning the application of computers to the management of information and uncertainty in design, and to design automation.  He has carried out research in the knowledge and information management for complex long-lived engineering products and systems (especially in the context of product-service-systems), in information requirements of engineering designers and in systems to support their information organisation and access, in annotation in design (especially the semantic annotation of computer-aided design models), in risk and uncertainty management in design, in component durability and reliability, especially in the presence of residual stresses, and in eco-design and design for remanufacturing.
