Dr Newnes is Head of Costing Research within the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Her research focuses on through life costing from concept design through to the in-service/in-use phases. The sectors/application areas for her activities include; aerospace, defence, medical device design, modelling uncertainty in through life costing, modelling in-service costs and trade-off analysis between specification and cost. She is an investigator on two major Innovative Manufacturing Research Centres; the Innovative Design and Manufacturing Research Centre at the University of Bath and the Innovative electronics Manufacturing Research Centre.

Typical industrial linked projects, which illustrate her current research include;

       Costing for Avionic Through life Availability (CATA)

       Uncertainty in Through Life Costing.

       In-Service Cost Estimating feedback to the concept design cost modelling process

       Using Taguchi techniques to optimise product specification and cost.

       Modelling and managing uncertainty in the bidding process for in-service contracts – predicting the probability of winning the contract, probability of profit and expected profit.
