The LoCM team are pleased to announce that Dr Nataliya Mogles has accepted a job offer in Amsterdam where she will be leading an insight team to support executive search, recruitment and talent management.
Nataliya will continue to work on the project for a day a week over the next few months to complete a number of key publications.
Well done Nataliya!
Building on our work developing real-time project health monitoring dashboards with TeamBath Racing’17, we had the opportunity to work with the project manager and team leads of TeamBath Racing’18 (TBR18) to explore how our dashboards may support early stage project planning. Specifically, we developed a historical ‘year in review’ dashboard enabling TBR18 to review project activities across the lifecycle of previous TBR project teams. Initial results from a project planning workshop suggest that the provision of the historical dashboard led managers to more clearly delineated design cycles and manufacturing cycles in their build plan Gantt charts, relative to managers without the provision of the historical dashboard. The managers cited that historic project data gave them a clearer, data-driven, perspective of the consequences of design work slippage and the knock on effects of that had in delaying the completion of manufacturing cycles.
The LoCM team had the opportunity to showcase a number of the dashboard and visualisation tools developed on the project at this year’s Formula Student UK competition event. Over the course four days we shared hands-on demos of our project and knowledge management visualisation dashboards, as well as novel FS health monitoring splash board and interactive AR car model with layered project data. We enjoyed a high level of interest in our data analytic and visualisation techniques from both industry sponsor representatives and Formula Student teams in the UK and abroad, including an invitation to exhibit our research at the upcoming World Motorsport Symposium in November.
The LOCM team have just returned from Vancouver after presenting their research at the International Conference of Engineering Design.
The team presented 3 papers:
Particular congratulations goes to Dr. Snider for receiving best in conference paper award!
At the end of last week LOCM were fortunate enough to be invited to exhibit our work at the RaceTech World Motorsport Symposium hosted at the Institute of Mechanical Engineers in London, UK.
This two-day event hosts the world leaders in motorsport development, manufacture, and racing, giving unprecedented access to the decision makers and thought leaders of the automotive field.
Over the two days LOCM had the opportunity to present their work and demonstrate their capability to technical leads and directors of multiple Formula 1 teams, Audi Motorsport, Toyota Motorsport, McLaren Motorsport, and the FIA.
We received lots of interest in our techniques, and lots of leads to pursue!
