If you would like to help shape how projects are delivered in the future, then Project:Hack will give you the opportunity to work with and influence major players in industry who share this bold vision and passion. Data Science is transforming how projects are delivered, it can save billions for society, improve certainty in outcomes and change the face of the project management profession forever.

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.

Challenges

The brief for Project:Hack10 is to deliver innovative solutions around project delivery themes. Challenges have been devised to suit different skillsets and levels of expertise . Further information regarding the challenges will be announced nearer the time.

Project:Hack10 Challenges :

1. Automated Project Reporting Tool

Can we create a tool to automate the collection of monthly report updates and combine them into a single document? Can we ensure that correct formatting is adhered to and that as much of the process is automated as possible?

2. Hazard Recognition Tool

Can we create an app that can be used on sites to record our hazard data? Can we use object recognition to complete hazard reports?

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?

5. Article web scraping for opportunity monitoring

Can we create a python script to scrape target websites and trim articles to appropriate size? Can we use automation to send those trimmed articles out to key people in a weekly email?

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?

7. Valve Failure Rate Analysis

Can we use our automated valve records to determine how and when the valve is likely to fail? Can we present this data in an actionable way to our clients with clear insight into data trends?

8. Optimising Project Wins

Can we use analytics to determine how best to approach winning public sector contract? Can we determine if our bids will be successful and if they are worth investing in?

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?

Project:Hack 10 challenges coming soon!

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. In the COVID-19 meltdown we won't be able to award prizes, but you will be able to bask in the glory associated with shaping the future of project management.

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.
