Its interesting to think about how to measure technology development .
TRL and MRL are no longer sufficient measures, given that we are developing processes and product design simulation capability
Technology evaluation, the discussion continues
We need to think about accelerating technology to market, and thus the measures based on physical prototypes needs to be rethought. At TaBA Associates we are working with leading Universities to further the debate.
During 2019 and through the year of 2020 TaBA Associates have developed the licience agreement for Salop Design and Engineering (now SDE Technology) to use the HFQ technology .
Richard Homden and Jonathan Watkins sealed the deal with a handshake
Les Gill that led to the re branding of Salop Design and Engineering , to SDE Technology, lightweighting experts https://www.sde.technology/.
Les is also on the Advisory Panel for SDE Technology, supporting their new business strategy development.
TaBA Les Gill , saying that the team of Roland and Shirley at Cherry Branding are great assets to draw upon for the rebranding and PR strategy. Helping shaping things to come
Off of the back of the intensive work to deliver a workable licience agreement with Impressions Technology Ltd, on the use of HFQ . TaBA are the project leaders for the lightweighting development at SDE Technology.
The story doesn’t end there,
TaBA Associates , Les Gill And Gareth Purdy have been working with SDE on, tactical factory transformation.
Using Standard Operating processes , 5s and Work cell visualisations techniques to improve operating efficiencies.
