Milos Milisavljevic

Milos Milisavljevic, co-founder and CEO of Strawberry Energy, and prizewinner of the #IFWE Challenge will be pitching today at VERGE Conference in San Francisco, an international event “where tech meets sustainability” organised by our partner GreenBiz.

Indeed, not only Milos will be attending the conference (as part of his perks for winning the 2nd prize of the #IFWE Challenge), but he has been selected among tens of other candidates to pitch about his projects in front of a large audience of sustainability professionals, media, and investors.

See his application pitch below:

As a matter of fact, Milos is already used to such exercise as he brilliantly spoke at the New Cities Summit 2014 event (organized by our partner New Cities Foundation). Watch his presentation below: YouTube Preview Image But for now, let’s wish best of luck to Milos’ pitch today, between 10:05 and 10:30 (San Francisco time)! If you’re not physically attending VERGE Conference, you can still attend VERGE Virtual Event by registering for free.

How Microsoft Devices Group Streamlined its Global Development and Manufacturing Processes

By Estelle

 

Microsoft phone devices

Mobile devices and phones are a ubiquitous part of our daily lives.  Various manufacturers have come into the scene, offering differentiation on anything – from features, design, price and everything else in between.

Microsoft Devices Group has one goal in mind: to come up with technologically advanced products that are also something that you would want to have and proudly show off to the world.  Not only do their products have to be beautiful and technically superior, these also have to be functional: helping people do more while enjoying great experiences with their devices.

It is an interesting time for Microsoft.  With increased competition, the company needs to have that phone that would surpass all of its previous releases.  And design is one of the most crucial factors.

Being a multinational corporation, Microsoft has design talents in different parts of the world, and they needed to simplify the way they designed and developed their devices.  This involved changes to their process and organization on a global scale as they had people in different countries that needed to share ideas and work on these ideas.

At that point, Microsoft Devices Group was using third-party applications that they have to heavily customize to fit their needs.  As a result, they were incurring huge costs to maintain the software.  The company realized that they needed to standardize the installation of software at all their developmental sites in order to achieve the following:

  1. to make sure that they have shorter design cycle times for their products,
  2. to enable every stakeholder to access updated and accurate information about these products and
  3. to make their manufacturing and R&D units more efficient.

In the case of Microsoft Devices Group, they are able to leverage the Smarter, Faster, Lighter Industry Solution Experience and the HT body Industry Solution Experience to meet their needs.

Those solutions used by Microsoft Devices Group currently for their design processes are working so well that the company plans to include other stakeholders into the mix.  Rather than limiting it to the design, engineering, manufacturing and other teams, they are now thinking of letting suppliers and similarly interested key parties get access of the information available on these platforms.  This way, it will be easier to send and receive information back and forth, while also allowing these key stakeholders to participate in the design process.   This would help the company come up with phones and devices that fit with their own goal of helping their customers “do more”.

Modul’Air: Design Thinking and Simulation Technology Help Redesign Public Transportation

Painless Public Transportation System”

Modul’Air, a finalist for the prestigious International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA), offers a radical rethink of the urban mobility experience.

A central goal of the new public transportation system redesign was to harmonize human activity and nature in the French city of Grenoble.

The result is an innovative system of pods, transporting passengers and freight, which seamlessly connect, scale up and down according to volume patterns, and integrate with ground transportation modes.

The resulting passenger experience is extraordinarily painless and transparent—an obvious solution in hindsight. By design, Modul’Air lowers the barriers to utilizing public transportation and frees up ground space for a healthier environment and higher quality of life.

Eiffage’s Foresight Lab, Phosphore, and Dassault Systèmes Design Studio collaborated on the development of the Modul’Air experience.

In the process, Eiffage forged strategic partnerships with new business partners, in particular cable infrastructure builder POMA. Modul’Air project contributors leveraged the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, which is now available on a cloud environment.

The Dassault Systèmes Design Studio provides holistic design innovation and implementation services for any industry. Design Studio partners become actors of innovation, bringing human understanding to the design process through advanced visualization, social collaboration, and decision-making applications.
