The Centre for Modelling & Simulation (CFMS), a not-for-profit specialist in digital engineering capability, has partnered with Digital Catapult to transform digital engineering capability and encourage the use of advanced digital technologies in the automotive sector.
CFMS provides a digital test bed for the design of high value engineering products and processes. Digital Catapult is the UK’s leading advanced digital technology innovation centre, driving the early adoption of digital technologies to make UK businesses more competitive and productive.
The collaboration will facilitate the development of new and innovative products and services, in turn providing a strategic advantage for the automotive industry as a whole.
With a common interest in identifying disruptive technological advances that will transform UK industry, the three-year Memorandum of Understanding will identify synergies between both organisations, map mutual strategic objectives and identify opportunities for further collaborative activities and projects.
Dr Jeremy Silver, Chief Executive Officer, Digital Catapult, comments, “CFMS has tremendous strengths in simulation, data visualisation and machine learning. Our joint discussions have led us to see significant opportunities to offer enhanced services to industry by working together. Pooling our resources will enable us to broaden the range of conversations we can have with a wider number of clients. We hope that together, industry partners will see new opportunities to increase and deepen their R&D with us.”
Sam Paice, Chief Operating Officer, CFMS, said, “Working with organisations to advance innovation capability and strategic advantage in the global marketplace is a key focus of CFMS. The partnership with Digital Catapult will strengthen our joint vision to transform design, engineering and manufacturing processes, unlocking new business models through new digital services.”
