What will this project involve?
The Connected Tempest flagship is designed to help cross that divide. We will be mapping the information on which many of the world’s biggest manufacturers base their decisions. This data will then be used to create a new, general standard for engineering information, helping to standardise and therefore connect live data right from material producers to OEMs across supply chains. This will help to unleash the power of our manufacturing base, slashing waste in materials, time, and money that results from manufacturers acting on outdated or incomplete information.
The project will set up two test bed nodes at the NCC and AMRC and will run mock supply chain scenarios using the novel techniques being developed in the project to demonstrate supply chain process efficiency improvements through the deployment of digital tools.
