Mr. Mukti is a PhD candidate at the Design Research Centre-MRG, Department of Mechanical Engineering University College London. He researches and develops a novel approach utilising the application of network theory and the UCL Design Building Block methodology for better understanding the impact of different distributed systems decisions in the early stage design of Physically Large and Complex (PL&C) Products. He was recently awarded as one of the Best Flash PhD Presenters from the UCL Department of Mechanical Engineering. His research interests include Complex Products Design, Deepwater Subsea Riser & Pipelines Design, and Autonomous Marine Vehicles Technology both for the defence industry as well as commercial-civilian applications.
Physically Large and Complex Products (PL&C) such as offshore oil rigs and naval ships, including submarine at the extreme of dense outfitting, have highly complex interconnected and interdependent Distributed Ship Service Systems (DS3). Submarine DS3 can have a significant impact on boat cost and performance and configurational options should be explored and assessed in early stage design to allow a more effective design input to requirement elucidation. Submarine DS3 are however very difficult to examine in early stage design and thus methods need to be developed to reduce this difficulty. The research aims to develop an integrated DS3 synthesis method that facilitates the exploratory consideration of important DS3 aspects in early stage design for a better understanding of the DS3 requirements for a new submarine design option and their impact on that design, develop a distributed submarine service systems synthesis approach that utilises the advantages of a 3-dimensional submarine synthesis and a 3-dimensional informed dialogue with stakeholders, and develop mathematical models of network flow programming representing the nature of the design of the distinctly different submarine distributed systems.

About Muhammad Hary Mukti
Mr. Mukti earned a Master of Engineering in Ocean Engineering with a focus on subsea riser & pipelines design and subsea project implementation from Texas A&M University, USA in 2017; a 2N Professional Course in Shipbuilding Operations and Technology from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA in 2017; a Bachelor of Engineering in Naval Engineering from Department of Mechanical Engineering Universitas Indonesia in 2012. He founded an international competition student team namely Autonomous Marine Vehicle Universitas Indonesia (amv.ui.ac.id) and awarded as one of the Outstanding Students of the Faculty of Engineering Universitas Indonesia in 2010. After receiving his bachelor, Mr. Mukti worked on various industries and level of responsibilities, ranging from a project leader of a High-Speed Craft (HSC) project and a key person for the detailed-design of laydown area modules of the INPEX-Ichthys Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) Platform project until 2014. Moving on, Mr. Mukti was awarded as one of the best 100 Indonesian students to receive the most competitive and prestigious scholarship from President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in 2014 (https://www.aminef.or.id/indonesia-presidential-scholarship-program-launched-state-palace/). Before Mr. Mukti started pursuing his PhD degree at UCL, had an internship in Tokyo, Japan as well as supported Ministry of National Development Planning in Indonesia in the Special Advisor to the Minister Unit for various investment projects of the National Strategic Heavy Industries.
