Unearthed Perth: The Biggest One Yet
Over 100 tech entrepreneurs and innovators took part in our biggest hackathon to date, with almost 100 more observers from universities, industry and government sectors. 22 teams pitched their prototype solutions to four different industry challenges from Woodside on Sunday 10 April:
- Fitness for Work: Develop innovative solutions to identify a person's FFW and physical well being
- Vessel Optimisation: Improve the utilisation of deck space on offshore supply boat
- Returns Rationalisation: Reduce Woodside's current RoR (30%) to the industry average of 10%
- Direct Supply Purchasing: Provide a solution that effectively manages supply chain reliability
1st Prize $2500: Fat Controller. Challenge: Vessel Optimisation
A dynamic system for optimising vessel packaging and scheduling based on evolutionary algorithms generated from demand for Woodside's supplies, which aim to minimise wasted deck space.
Team members: Adrian Petersen, Alex Khor, Dylan Johnston, Ilyas Ridhuan, Mark Shelton, Michael Ford and Tom Smoker.
2nd Prize $1500: Bank Holiday. Challenge: Vessel Optimisation
Team Bank Holiday developed Ship Stream, a platform to produce vessel schedules using a optimisation algorithm. The platform goal is to free vessels for full days so they can be re-leased to other companies while still satisfying all delivery requirements. As more companies use the platform, the boat pool size will grow and the opportunity for optimisations would be improved.
Team members: Al Harvey, Ben Dougherty, John Vial and Michael Evans.
Young Innovators $1000: NoReturnsDT. Challenge: Returns Rationalisation
The NoReturnsDT tool is a decision tree tool to predict which parts will be returned. It does this by parsing current data, analysing the data and visualising it to identify high likelihood returns.
Team members: Abdul Aziz, Ashwin D'Cruz, Melinda Hodkiewicz, Rohan Mehra and Tom McKeon.
CIIC Prize: Ontrack. Challenge: Fitness for Work
Ontrack developed a tracking system visualisation using RFID tags to plot, track and monitor the OH&S of individuals. Using data collected from fatigue monitoring, hours worked and general well being this solution identifies individuals who were at high risk and communicates with them in real time, prior to an incident occurring.
Team members: Daniel Narayan, Oliver Wasse, Ricky Baharwal, Sarada Lee and Sean Driver.
