LOCM is going to ICED 2017!

The LOCM team are excited to be packing their bags and heading to Vancouver, for the 21st International Conference on Engineering Design, hosted at the University of British Colombia, Canada.

We’ve had great success this year with three papers accepted and three presentations to give. Watch out for our presentations in the conference schedule:

Dr Chris Snider – Identifying the influences on performance of engineering design and development projects

Dr James Gopsill – Automatic design structure matrices: A comparison of two formula student projects

David Jones – Improving engineering information retrieval by combining TD-IDF and product structure classification

See you in Canada!

Outstanding contributions to Design ’16 and DCC ’16

Not content with being recognised for his outstanding contribution to the international Design 2016 conference,  Chris has also won ‘best poster presentation’ at Design Computing and Cognition.

Read his Design 2016 paper, check out his DCC ’16 poster, or just admire his happy face.  Well done Chris!

Design Computing and Cognition 2016

This week we’re at the 7th International Design Computing and Cognition conference in Chicago.

Our project has just been presented via an elevator pitch and a poster. The feedback was great, with lots of interest and enthusiasm for the concept of engineering Project Health Monitoring (ePHM).

Delegates were really interested in the set of project features that we have developed and the ‘proxies’ that we use to monitor these. As a consequence, we are going to add a new section to this website that summarises each proxy and the project features for which it can provide insight.  Want to know more?  Check out the poster and abstract below…

Quarter 5 – January 2015 update

The major focus of our research effort has been on the acquisition of further datasets, preparation of prototype dashboards (vision demonstrators) and preparation of conference papers.

For example, here is a new composite of various analyses:

Q5-Jan-2015

We’re also pleased to report that a total of five conference papers were accepted for presentation at the prestigious International Conference on Engineering Design (http://iced2015.org/), to be held in Milan in July. Details of these papers may be found in our publications section. We are also pleased to announce that RWA have now joined the project.
