Our community is mainly intended for engineering talent (mechanical, electrical, chemical, industrial…) from any industry. Ennomotive tournaments relate to challenges in operations (product development, sourcing and procurement, manufacturing or construction, delivery and maintenance or after sales). Challenges can be technical or business related and from a wide range of industries (we strongly promote cross-industry innovation). Some examples include product/service optimization or cost reduction, manufacturing productivity optimization, quality improvement, energy efficiency optimization, transportation service optimization,… Should you have any question contact us.
Prior to post a challenge you need to contact us and sign a general contract. This contract describes all the game rules so that you can be aware on duties and rights from all parties. Once the contract is signed you will receive a user to create and post challenges.
This is regulated through our client contracts and participants terms & conditions. IP of any submission is transferred to you if awarded with a prize. However, you as challenge owner may decide to give up or share IP through particular terms & conditions to increase motivation of participants. We strongly recommend to share benefits since this is the key for everybody to win.
Our technology and processes provide high flexibility to manage confidentiality: You can decide not to publish your company name, use our private tournaments (only by invitation), share information progressively with participants or even ask for an NDA (Non disclosure agreements). Please contact us for further details.
Challenge description define the criteria to assess the proposed solutions. We help to define and review such criteria before the challenge is released. This helps participants to have a better understanding of expectations and define clear rules for everyone.
By default we provide visibility on some information around challenge participants (e.g. country, type of user – e.g. company, freelancer, student…- and qualifications). Full identity is limited to those that have been awarded, by the end of the challenge. We do this to increase efficiency in our tournaments and focus efforts on solving the challenge.
