A disruptive data-centric end-to-end requirements planning and automated verification platform



Construction projects are notorious for being critically delayed and going over budget – 98% of all megaprojects ($1billion+) suffer cost overruns of >30%,
77% are at least 40% late (Mckinsey). The safety and quality of buildings are under increasing scrutiny following the Grenfell Tower tragedy and the Hackitt
Report. It is globally recognised within the construction industry that a ‘golden thread of information’ is key to overcoming these issues. Currently,
requirements of all types (information/functional/performance/regulatory, etc.) are fragmented and locked up in documents, making them difficult to apply
consistently and uniformly. Over-burdened project management teams, therefore, must manage project requirements manually, configure and change
manually, using disconnected, disjointed, complex paper-based processes. This approach is subject to major human error and results in significant mistakes,
delays, waste and poor audit trails. There is a recognised _unmet market need for data-driven solutions that can enable improved information management
to increase the certainty of project outcomes, increase productivity and reduce costs, and provide better audibility and transparency._
The proposed project seeks to develop a novel automated requirements management platform where data-rich and machine-executable requirements can
be collaboratively and progressively defined, planned and agreed upon, and deliverables automatically verified against specified requirements, thus offering
a unique scalable solution for improved requirements, drastically reducing risk and costly rework, and improving quality and certainty of projects.
The project builds on Morta’s existing information requirements planning and management platform (MVP). To meet expressed industry need, government
priorities, and to become a fully viable commercial offering with market-disrupting potential, it is critical that the platform is technically advanced to enable
end-to-end requirements management for requirements across the lifecycle of a project. This project focuses on proving the feasibility of this technically
complex approach through the development of a proof of concept prototype (TRL5) and testing in the field to provide initial validation. Significant benefits are
foreseen, e.g. Increased certainty of project outcomes; shorter project execution times and cost reductions through reduced project rework and waste;
increased efficiencies and productivity; improved safety, quality, auditability and transparency. The project will deliver ambitious growth and increased
knowledge for both project partners, with further opportunity for R&D investment
