DriveWorks Challenge 6

Join The DriveWorks Challenge 6

In the June DriveWorks Drivers meeting earlier this month we launched DriveWorks Challenge 6.

If you’re new to the challenge, here’s how you can get involved…

The idea is simple, we provide you with a brief (find out more about that below), and all you need to do is come up with a solution that meets the requirements in the brief. The challenge is designed to be relatively quick (we certainly don’t want to make more work for you!) and to help you explore new ways of thinking and working within DriveWorks.

The goal of The DriveWorks Challenge is to provide you with a quick, fun puzzle that can help you shift mental gears and change the way that you look at DriveWorks and at your own implementation.

You will have plenty of time to complete the challenge as the closing date isn’t until 31st August. There’s no pressure and you can put as much or as little effort into it as you see appropriate.

At the end of the challenge, we’ll post a video and DriveWorks Package (.drivepkg) in the DriveWorks Learning Portal showing how we solved the challenge, along with some of our favorite submissions.

What is the Challenge 6 Brief?

DriveWorks Challenge 6 looks at how to provide a better user experience by reducing the number of choices and the complexity of those choices from a list.

Your challenge is to provide a new and creative way to let our users select one option from a catalog of over 1500 cabinet handles and knobs.

This very common situation should be reusable in almost every implementation, so we’re excited to see what you submit.

Watch the video to see a Challenge 6 overview.

Please get your submissions in before 31st August 2024 to be in with a chance of winning a prize!

Who Can Take the Challenge?

DriveWorks Challenge 6 is open to, and achievable by all DriveWorks skill levels. No engineering, IT or SOLIDWORKS knowledge required.

Take as much or as little time as you like (average time is around 30 minutes).

The deadline for submissions for prizes is 31st August.
You can of course submit after this time but your submission will not be entered into the prize draw.
