NCC drives the digital engineering revolution in the West of England

To deliver a low carbon global economy, everything we make will need to be reimagined and re-engineered. The design technologies and processes of products need to be optimised to make them low cost, quick, and right first time.

Engineers are working out what tools to use, what technologies to invest in and how to exploit the data captured at every stage. This is where Digital Engineering, Technology and Innovation (DETI) comes in.

Based in the West of England and led by the NCC, the DETI test-bed will develop powerful new tools and methods to allow industry to design better products, using artificial intelligence and machine learning, digital twinning, visualisation and cyber security technologies. The two-year R&D initiative aims to support businesses to recover and emerge digitally stronger, something that will become even more important post the COVID-19 pandemic. By fast-tracking innovation, the West of England will be better placed to maintain employment levels, have a more competitive position in global markets, and make business more resilient to similar disruption.
