Martin Jones joins Altair Engineering

Martin Jones has joined Altair Engineering's Product Design (PD) consultancy division to lead the full development of a new urban electric vehicle (EV).

Jones joins Altair from Tata Technologies where he was responsible for leading vehicle development programmes. He has a broad range of experience in the automotive industry at a senior level having held positions at JCB, IBM UK, and Rover Group.

Jones' role as European chief engineer is the result of Altair PD being selected as a development partner for a new luxury electric urban vehicle for a leading automotive company. Altair PD is responsible for vehicle development from concept to production, and it will draw upon its global engineering expertise and use of its proven simulation-driven design process to deliver the programme.

'I have held some challenging management positions and privileged senior engineering leadership roles throughout my career,' said Jones. 'The difference at Altair PD to any of my previous roles is the immediate availability of highly skilled, innovative engineers that are equipped with best-in-class leading edged simulation tools and techniques they need to do the job properly.'

Building a Smart Laboratory 2018 highlights the importance of adopting smart laboratory technology, as well as pointing out the challenges and pitfalls of the process

Feature

Informatics experts share their experiences on the implementing new technologies and manging change in the modern laboratory

Feature

This chapter will consider the different classes of instruments and computerised instrument systems to be found in laboratories and the role they play in computerised experiments and sample processing – and the steady progress towards all-electronic laboratories.

Feature

This chapter considers how the smart laboratory contributes to the requirements of a knowledge eco-system, and the practical consequences of joined-up science. Knowledge management describes the processes that bring people and information together to address the acquisition, processing, storage, use, and re-use of knowledge to develop understanding and to create value

Feature

This chapter takes the theme of knowledge management beyond document handling into the analysis and mining of data. Technology by itself is not enough – laboratory staff need to understand the output from the data analysis tools – and so data analytics must be considered holistically, starting with the design of the experiment
