Module overview

Complex high value capital goods play a key role in the modern economy, wider society, and increasingly underpin a competitive advantage for countries, international firms, and high-technology industries such as IT, Telecoms, Aerospace, Manufacturing, Energy, and Construction. Complex products and systems which are a subset of capital goods, can be understood as high cost technology-intensive customised products, systems, networks, infrastructure, constructs, and services.

The design, production, operations, and implementation of complex products and systems are mainly focused on value-creation activities which require extreme levels of technology and innovation on a distinct project basis. Therefore, this module will introduce students to a range of issues focused on how complex projects are managed and controlled in the development and supply of complex products and systems.

Additionally, whereas the innovation literature is concerned with mass produced products, goods, and services, conversely this module introduces students to project management concepts, tools, and techniques involved with the dynamics of innovation systems in high-technology complex products.
