Massive Small Manufacturing
= "The goal of this project is to improve the fluidity of disaster relief agency supply chains and increase economic opportunities for struggling communities".
With Andrew Lamb and Anna Sera Lowe.
"In times of disaster, damaged communities and aid agencies rely on supply chains that fail them. Systemic problems in production and logistics mean emergency equipment is delivered late - or not at all - with high expense attached. Shipping costs devour aid agency budgets, relief workers lack the emergency equipment they need, and lives are lost as a result.
Andrew Lamb has a long history of working in humanitarian relief innovation and is determined to fix - or replace - this broken system. Andrew will test the viability of open production to provide a future where supplies are made in the field faster, better and cheaper, relief workers have immediate access to vital equipment, and struggling communities can rebuild sustainably."
