Personal profile


Dr Andrew Greasley is a Lecturer in Technology and Operations Management at Aston University.

He is on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Manufacturing Technology Management. He has extensive experience of working with organisations in the public and private sectors in the area of developing discrete-event simulation models in commercial software such as Arena and Simio.
