Provide useful filter for same.
    Create a dashboard with useful information considering UI/UX from a sales user’s perspective. Assume suitable information as and when required to enhance the solution

  2. Procurement System

    Manufacturing and Pharmaceutical companies such as Prestige, Sun Pharma require a variety of raw materials for their products. These raw materials are sourced from multiple vendors (a single type of product/raw material can be sourced from more than one vendor). The agreement for the product is contracted in advance and for a specified duration such as a month, quarter, or year, i.e., every agreement has an agreement start date and agreement end date. Once the agreement date is close by (less than or equal to 15 days from today), the manufacturer floats a new RFP (Request for Proposal) among his vendors for a new agreement and selects the best agreement. An agreement consists of the agreement start date, agreement end date, the total cost per unit for the product, and whether the delivery of the product is the vendor’s responsibility of the manufacturer has to pick up the product from the vendor’s site.

    Keywords:

    1. Product: Raw material used by the manufacturer. There will always be multiple vendors for a single product

    2. Product Master: Internal Master/list of all products used by the manufacturer

    3. Vendor: Sells the raw material/product. A single vendor can provide multiple products

    4. Manufacturer: Uses raw material to produce finished goods

    5. Agreement: A mutual understanding between Vendor and Manufacturer regarding the cost per unit for a product, start and end date of the agreed-upon cost, delivery responsibility. An Agreement consists of

    a. Total cost per unit

    b. agreement start-date

    c. agreement end-date

    d. delivery mode: either by vendor or pickup by the manufacturer.

    6. RFP: Request for Proposal / Agreement made by Manufacturer and sent to Vendors

    Current Process

    1. The Procurement Team identifies all Agreements which will be expiring in the next 15 days.

    2. Procurement Team Floats a new RFP among the vendors through email with a deadline

    3. The vendors respond to the RFP by replying to the email with an agreement

    4. The Procurement team does not accept any Agreement beyond the deadline

    5. Upon receiving the Agreement, the procurement team has an option to negotiate by submitting a counter/target price per unit

    6. Once the final Agreement rates are received from all vendors, they are compiled together and one or more Agreements out of all the received Agreements are selected by the Procurement team.

    Requirement You are expected to create a web application that would digitize the above process bringing all the stakeholders on a single platform. The above process takes around 45 minutes for one Agreement and with the help of a web application and your creativity, you can reduce the time to 15 minutes per Agreement. Assume suitable information as and when needed.

Defense and Aerospace

Ranging from satellite imagery to automated drone systems, the defense and aerospace track includes all forms of technology in the field of aviation with a special emphasis on using these technologies for the detection and elimination of threats to nations.

Problem statements

  1. Drone (swarm) & UAVs navigation system and/or solutions around them (new approaches).

    From emergency rescues and data collection to wildlife photography, drones are becoming a tool of choice. Smart drones with built-in safeguards and compliance tech, smart accurate sensors, and self-monitoring are the next big revolution in the drone industry. Work on ideas and create tools centered around drones.

  2. Devise tools that make observational data more accessible for use by scientists, decision-makers, and the public.

    The lack of refined authentic statistical data as well as an inability to easily access it has led to the spread of a wildfire of misinformation. Make the best out of your technical skills and create tools to refine and present this raw data for anyone to use and build applications.

  3. Online Intelligence Gathering and Analytics Tool

    “The Internet is the town square of the global village” and caters to any and everyone in the world. We see that tracking the web for specific keywords/messages/emails can help detect not only the social, political, and cultural aspects of a targeted audience but can also identify threats to national security. Build tools to identify and analyse this data.

Education Technology

In today’s world, technology is incorporated in almost every aspect of our lives including education. This enables an improved learning environment which boosts student outcomes, increases student engagement and participation in class.

Problem statements

  1. Develop tools that would increase Productivity for students and teachers.

    In the past 10-15 years we have seen the transition of things around us from offline to online, whether it’s business, entertainment activities, daily needs, and now even education. Productivity tools have been a success with businesses and firms. Develop productivity tools for students and teachers in any domain of your choice that can achieve the same success in the educational field in the future.

  2. Create solutions to spread knowledge surpassing language and ability barriers.

    Education to a man is what a strong foundation is to a building. It is of great importance in one’s life, and should be accessible to all. There has been progress in innovations made towards the education and development of specially abled individuals but there is still a long way to go to bridge this gap. Come up with solutions to solve the issues faced by people with special needs in conventional education.

  3. Solutions assisting the spread of digital learning (outside formal institutions like schools/colleges/coaching)(offline community learning)

    Education has evolved from the traditional slate and chalk way of learning. The learners of today share ideas with their peers and use the digital community to their advantage. Develop solutions to encourage healthy competition and facilitate community learning amongst students.

Healthcare and Social Responsibility

The world today faces a huge number of challenges in the field of healthcare and societal concerns. We, being the future of the society, hold the responsibility to use technology- a great engine of change, as a tool to tackle these problems.

Problem statements

  1. Indoor fitness during pandemic

    Lack of motivation and limited access to facilities can make maintaining an indoor fitness regime difficult. In the spirit of a healthy lifestyle during the pandemic, implement technology and use your ideas to help you work(out) from home.

  2. Rapid SOS / Providing immediate assistance during emergencies when the emergency services can't reach on time

    Waiting for the first responders to arrive is not always an option. When the situation gets dire, effective communication and support become essential to tackle the emergency. Can your innovation make a difference in these matters of life or death?

  3. Suggest solutions that would help increase women safety in high risk areas

    According to the World Health Organisation, one in three women have experienced some kind of physical or sexual violence. It is imperative that our cities become more secure and safer for women. Suggest solutions that would help increase women safety in high risk areas
