This organisation is seeking ways to improve on existing manufacturing processes and techniques by incorporating new machinery or materials onto production lines.
Potential improvements include reduced processing time, lower cost of manufacture, lower cost of materials or less intensive techniques. Solutions must have a clear benefit of use over existing technologies and must not cause significant cost increases. Example solutions include novel composites, coatings that improve performance, or machining tools.
This organisation would like for solutions to have been evaluated in real-world conditions, with testing data that shows clear benefits of use and feasibility at large-scale.
