Areas of expertise
Dr. Erkoyuncu previously worked as a Lecturer in Service Simulation and Visualisation. His research focused on: 1) augmented reality applications in manufacturing and maintenance and 2) modelling maintenance requirements. He has worked on a number of Innovate UK and EPSRC projects in various roles ranging from PI, Co-I and Named Researcher.
Prior to becoming a Lecturer, as Research Fellow, John was based at Rolls-Royce, Derby. In this role he developed a software tool to trade-off the design requirements (e.g. unit cost, emission, noise). Dr. Erkoyuncu also was involved in an EU funded infrastructure project on visualisation. His responsibility focused on implementing augmented reality within the healthcare context to support GPs in primary care.
John’s PhD focused on how to quantify the impact
of uncertainty when estimating the cost of maintenance. His PhD was conducted
in collaboration with BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce and MoD. The project focused on
the bidding stage of availability based contracts.
Dr. Erkoyuncu is the Deputy-Director of the Through-life Engineering Services Centre. The Centre focuses on two main themes: 1) Degradation assessment, 2) Digital Service Engineering. John is active with Innovate UK and EPSRC funded projects around research topics: digital twins, augmented reality, digitisation (of degradation assessment), and simulation of complex manufacturing and maintenance procedures.
John is the Course Director for the MSc in Through-life System Sustainment. This is a part-time MSc for experienced industrial professionals. The MSc focuses on the design, delivery and end of life of complex and long-life assets.
Dr. Erkoyuncu is currently co-supervising ten PhD projects; eight of which are co-funded by industry. The projects are focused on enhancing predictability of complex maintenance, and improving efficiency of manufacturing and maintenance within the defence, aerospace, pharmaceutical, health and automotive sectors. John is a CIRP Research Affiliate and a Member of IET.
