IGNITE (Integrated Intelligent Digital Tendering System)

Company:

PLACES FOR PEOPLE GROUP LIMITED, LYNQ LIMITED, MODULARWISE LIMITED, MTC OPERATIONS LIMITED, NORTHMILL ASSOCIATES LIMITED, PROJECT ETOPIA UK LIMITED, TOTALLY MODULAR LIMITED

IGNITE is a integrated software solution that will transform housing design, costing, tendering and manufacturing for MMC. It will create a transparent
procurement process for housing developers and MMC suppliers, and give certainty of specification back to housing providers and asset managers. It will act
as the basis of the ‘Golden Thread of Information’, and allow landlords to respond proactively to changes in regulation throughout their supply chain.
The aim of this project is to develop a digital process to reflect the roles of Architects and designers, and Quantity-surveyors into Manufacturing Supply-chain
System (AQMSS) to support and enable a more dynamic and agile supply chain for modular housing. The AQMSS will deliver transparency of product
design and costs and provide a full and complete digital record of procured houses to better enable and support whole life asset management.
The project will enable all of the consortium partners (and their sector equivalents throughout industry) to deliver their products and services more effectively,
efficiently and collaboratively. This will increase opportunity and drive greater productivity for all involved. Consortia partners are key stakeholders in the
current state process and will be direct beneficiaries of the outcomes.
Digital tendering will focus OSCs on improving their factory efficiency and adaptability. It will enable design and cost changes to be monitored in real time
with transparency on both sides of the supply chain, providing mutual benefits.
MMC enabled home builders are expected to achieve a 30-50% increase in the effectiveness of their resources (employees and machines), helping to
reduce the cost of manufacture and ultimately the price of OSC homes. This digitalisation and streamlining of the supply chain is expected to drive further
efficiencies while allowing OSC home builders to react and respond to changes in regulation, local market demand, material specifications and other design
changes. Having better visibility of the design and costing process, Registered Providers (RPs) can optimise supply chains and bulk procure components,
materials, fixtures and systems more effectively, reducing capital and operational costs. We anticipate material cost reduction of up to 10%. Planning and
forecasting project delivery from “decision to build” to placing an order could be reduced by as much as 8 weeks.
The project consortia includes a property developer, a number of Off-Site Construction (OSC) and modular building manufacturers, toolchain developers,
and systems integrators, covering the entire product development cycle and supply chain for these products.
