Insider Media have announced the shortlist of nominations for the prestigious Made in the North West Awards, and we are proud that the STRIVE project has been nominated for the Education in Business Award.
The aim of the three year “Simulation Tools for Rapid Innovation in Vehicle Engineering” (STRIVE) project, is to facilitate a ‘step change’ in UK automotive manufacturing, enhancing product design to support improvements in manufacturing productivity whilst retaining (and improving) build quality, along with creating a new ‘digital’ supply chain for the UK automotive sector
The R&D programme, led by independent automotive sector organisation, Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA), combines next generation technologies provided by Valuechain.com and our partner Optis, along with technical integration and research expertise through the University of Liverpool’s Virtual Engineering Centre. Collectively, we work with Bentley Motors’ Engineering and Product Launch teams in the development and engineering design of new models.
Collaboratively, STRIVE is developing an integrated solution of high fidelity simulation, immersive virtual prototypes and processes for evaluation and, ultimately, application for the advancement of the UK automotive industry.
The Made in the North West Awards, celebrates the region's engineering and manufacturing prowess, with the Education in Business award recognising the special relationship that can leads to practical research, product development, improved efficiency, innovation and staff development. The winners will be announced at a black-tie awards ceremony on Thursday, 5 May 2016.
