In 1967 Mr Geoffrey Boothroyd, a lecturer at the University of Salford, left the UK to join the University of Massachusetts in the USA. On 1 July 1991 Professor Boothroyd, of the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering in the University of Rhode Island and President of Boothroyd Dewhurst, Inc., returned to the University of Salford to talk briefly about his career in the intervening period and to give an account of the development of the Boothroyd Dewhurst methodology and software tool Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DFMA) with which his name is now closely associated in the USA and in Europe. The title for the evening was “Radical Redesign”.
