Our working partnership with George Sherratt and Innov8ive Software has proved a highly successful collaboration in terms of dedicated and accurate project delivery over the past four Formula 1™ seasons. Nowhere is this more evident than in our tailor made race strategy system, in which he played a key role in the design and implementation.
IS Manager, World Championship winning Formula 1™ team
Formula 1™ is recognised as the pinnacle of motorsport. The cars themselves are shining examples of precision engineering, technology and speed. The organisations that construct them have a dedication to excellence that is seldom surpassed.
In a sport where time-to-market can be measured in days, rather than months, our agile development methods have helped our Formula 1™ World Championship winning clients gain real competitive advantage.
Innov8ive Software personnel have worked closely with our clients to assist them with the design and development of their flagship race strategy system.
In such an increasingly competitive sport, hundredths of a second can make all the difference between winning and losing. The strategy solution integrates real-time race data with complex calculations to assist the race strategy team in making the key decisions that are vital to securing the best possible track position.
The solution integrates real-time race data with complex calculations, combined with an intuitive user interface that allows key decisions to be made in a time-critical environment. This high-availability solution enables the race strategy team to quickly identify key information from a data-rich environment.
Electronics Information System
Given very short implementation timescales, the Electronics Information System was developed using agile techniques.
Working very closely with our clients, a system was delivered that allows electronics engineers to plan and manage the creation of parts and components, and track their allocation to race cars. Engineers use the system to share accurate, up-to-the-minute information to help them plan their production schedules efficiently.
The solution makes use of web services and a smart client user interface to maximise integration, performance and flexibility.
Bill of Materials
This solution manages the approval process for part designs and variations and identifies exactly what parts are on a race car at any particular time, what alternatives are available and what dependencies exist between various combinations of components.
The solution tracks the status of each part revision so that hundreds of engineers and mechanics have a single authoritative source of information about the thousands of precision components that make up a Formula 1™ car.
Event Fault Logging
This highly successful project was selected by our clients to pilot agile development techniques using Microsoft .NET technologies.
Innov8ive Software personnel assisted in the design and development of the Event Fault logging system, which allows the efficient entry and prioritisation of any issues identified during race or test sessions. Comprehensive workflow and reporting facilities allow faults to be tracked through to resolution.
The effective use of web services and a smart client user interface allows the system to be used over limited bandwidth networks.
