Project:Hack Aims:

Explore methods and tools to transform how insights and value can be extracted from project data. Ranging from risk and schedule data through to on site presence of personnel.

Enable delivery professionals to understand the predisposition of projects to specific challenges, to predict them arising and take action to avoid the avoidable.

Ignite the professional imagination on what can be achieved and shape the future of project delivery.

 

Project:Hack11 Challenges TBC

 

Examples of previous Project:Hack10 Challenges :

3. Scope 3 Emission Analysis

Can we analyse all our scope 3 emission data and use it to find the outliers to target for improvement? Can we create an app that allows us to view our scope 3 emissions live and that can show us our emissions based on certain filters? i.e. Location, region, source

4. Training certificate parsing and cataloguing

Can we use automation to scrape through and catalogue our PDF training certificates? Can we create a tool that can be used for different awarding bodies?

6. Work Scope Log Visualization

Can we gain useful insight into when a project is likely to go over budget and when the work hours dedicated to a project are running beyond expectation? Can we visualise this information in order for it to be easily represented and shown to management and key decision makers in the company?

9. Equipment Failure Rate Analysis

Can we predict when a piece of equipment will have a fault by using historical maintenance data? Can we use our equipment failure data to streamline our maintenance and reduce cost?

10. Timesheet Recording and Monitoring System

Can we use an application to allow employees to log quickly and easily what work they have done on each project? Can I receive a live visualization on what work has been logged by my teams?

11. GPT-3 Task Breakdown Assistant

Can we use GPT-3 to break down projects into specific tasks that need completing? Can we use schedule data for training this model?

Let’s get started!

We'll start the event by introducing the challenges and the data sets. You'll then have the opportunity to pitch your idea to the crowd to invite team members, or join a team whose idea you want to work on. The remainder of the weekend will be spent developing the concepts, interrogating the data, building proof of concepts and delivering a solid pitch to support it. Finally, you'll get the opportunity to present to industry experts who will judge your proposal.

 

Happy to support you!

There will be online support. Data scientists, PowerBI experts and subject matter experts will help you with technical queries and mentors will guide you towards the perfect pitch. Computer science students are also welcome.It promises to be a great couple of days with food, drinks, ideas and bucket loads of fun.

 

The only requirement is to come with a lot of bright ideas and enthusiasm!
