IME Design Competition (IMEDC2014) l Product Life Cycle Challenge 2014 "Designing A Sustainable Future"

IME Design Competition is due soon! We have been organizing student design competition for some years and we are glad that it’s getting more positive support from both education institutions and industry partners. This year's theme is “Product Life Cycle Challenge 2014 – Designing a Sustainable Future”.  It’s an honour that this year’s competition is supported by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), who recognized the importance of educating young innovators on sustainable product design and development.

The competition aims to inspire and cultivate young and innovative talents, at the same time highlighting the efforts and initiative of students in promoting the concept of eco-sustainable product. 

At IME, we believe everyone has great ideas and what is required is just a nudge to make it work. IME is pleased to create a platform in exposing young innovators’ great ideas to the local industry, which is a valuable opportunity to increase their knowledge of product design and development for the market.  The competition not only benefits the young innovators, but the industry as a whole.  It is great to see young engineers-to-be being exposed to such opportunities, to realise their ideas, and at the same time prepare their professional profile and stand a chance to be scouted by Industry Leaders.

Below are some past events’ snapshots,

 And news from NTV7, 

We are pleased to announce that there are 44 groups of young innovators from 14 Universities participating for this year’s IME Design Competition, “Product Life Cycle Challenge 2014 – Designing a Sustainable Future”. We look forward to seeing how young innovators are going to turn great ideas into practical and sustainable products.

Engineers need a break from documentation & data!

Nowadays, most of the engineers are multitaskers, they deal with thousand of drawings, documents, forms, reports and data everyday.

What do they produce?
Intellectual Property and valuable data of a company that used by several departments for revenue generation
  • Engineering Proposal Package for RFQ process
  • Product Image and Marketing Content
  • Process planning and Production Drawings
  • Bill of Material with preferred option
How do they handle these important data?
  • Shared Folder
  • Server
  • External Hard Disc
  • Pendrive
  • Dropbox
A Server is only Network System, it is not an Engineering Data Management System!

These methods are threats of a company that may lead to:
  1. Lost of productivity
  2. Risk of wrong data & document
  3. Increase cost of scrap, compliance issue & quality
  4. Prolong project and unable to meet the target date
  5. Slow down time to market

It is a full-featured data management solution for organizations large and small. It helps your team more easily find and re-purpose files, parts, and drawings; share design information; automate workflows and ensure manufacturing always has the right version.

What can EPDM do?
  • Security Assess Control
  • Revision Control
  • Electronic Workflow process
  • History and Audit Trail
  • Multi Location Assess Point
  • Rapid Searching Capability
  • CAD data Management
