TLM Level 1 and Level 2 Certificates in Smart Product Design and Manufacture are qualifications that embody a highly relevant modern approach to product and technology development, design engineering and advanced manufacture. Product and technology innovation is under pressure to be both sustainable and accessible utilising various media streams to create new benefits for customers and clients. For example adding intelligence and interactive user interfaces to existing and new products is a critical strategy to satisfy these needs. 3D printing and the internet is providing product designers and engineers direct access to manufacturing capacity with low investment and short lead-times. There has never been a better time for product designers to take projects to market. The global management consultancy group, McKinsey’s, reported on the continued importance of manufacturing to global economies, and the value of new technologies such as 3D printing to drive massive transformations in products and services across a number of sectors from engineering to medicine to consumer goods.
