Smart loves problems. Problems inspire. To mend things. To bend things. To make things better. IBM has a history of collaborating with companies, both large and small, to bring engineering capabilities, innovations and knowledge to support their digital transformation journey aligned to their own business and technology goals.

In this transformation journey, exciting and high growth technology start-ups play a crucial role in driving fresh, original thinking and disruptive solutions.

That’s why Rolls-Royce and IBM are seeking the perfect IT service provider to optimise Rolls-Royce Defence's design process and invite you to participate in the Smart Engineering Design - Tech Innovation Challenge.

That’s why Rolls-Royce and IBM are seeking the perfect IT service provider to optimise Rolls-Royce Defence's design process and invite you to participate in the Smart Engineering Design - Tech Innovation Challenge.

The Challenge
Rolls-Royce Defence wishes to use existing data and live feeds of factory data to guide the design of new components. We want a system that allows our design Engineers to quantify the impact of their designs on the manufacturing process in order to improve our manufacturing right-first-time delivery. This will help to reduce the design iteration time for a new component and reduce the manufacturing cost of producing a part.

The Opportunity
The solution, if successful in delivering value, will be scaled across multiple global teams and may be rolled out across Rolls-Royce beyond the Defence business. The initial Proof of Concept deployment will be a paid PoC but will almost certainly be deployed for testing and productisation within the Rolls-Royce IT estate, hence any solutions need to be deployable on-premise.

The Solution
The Solution, to be delivered during the paid-for PoC, should seek to include one or more of the following technology and technology applications

• The extraction of insight from manufacturing capability data

• The ability to discern which insights have an impact on right-first-time manufacture

• Features that are complementary to the existing design software (Siemens NX)

• The ability to take design boundary conditions and combine them with manufacturing insights to create an initial first design for a component

• Cloud: Access to data and applications is critical for productivity and profitability

• Data & AI: Unlock the value of data and inject intelligence into applications to anticipate manufacturing requirements.
