Issue 3

In the third edition of the DETI newsletter we're discussing the real world value of digital to UK businesses, with insights from Digital Catapult on 5G use cases and findings from UWE research teams on AR applications in manufacturing. CFMS also share an update on their work with KISPE Space, where the team is developing open source satellite structural design. Jonathan Butt, Deputy Chief Engineer at the NCC also explores Digital Twins, debunking the misconception that they are a one-size fits all transformation tool. We are also delighted to share a presentation from Dr James Gopsill introducing the University of Bristol Design Manufacturing Futures Lab and a timely update on the new University of Bath IAAPPS facility.

    Digital Twin: A phrase not a product

    The digital twin might reduce development time, improve product quality, cut waste and ultimately, lower costs. However, Deputy Chief Engineer Jonathan Butt, NCC, challenges the Digital Twin as a single solution, one size fits all for manufacturers, and talks about the digital transformation process.

    Optimising satellite design for digital engineering

    CFMS is helping KISPE Space to develop the Open Source Satellite (OSSAT) programme. Their vision is to use the same satellite structure on different missions, and to ensure it is compatible with different launch vehicles. Read about how CFMS is using automated design tools to improve satellite structures.
