Automotive Industry

For automotive companies today, success hinges on the ability to manage costs while also meeting design requirements, deadlines, and, in many cases, government regulations. From the earliest stages of product conception to the final stages of manufacturing, alternative and innovative approaches must be explored, decisions must be guided by science, existing intelligence must be leveraged, processes must be optimized, and teams must be free to communicate. With Accelrys software you can meet these goals, pushing the envelope of innovation without driving up costs.

By implementing Accelrys' scientific operating platform, Pipeline Pilot, along with the Advanced Data Modeling and simulation environment, Materials Studio, you can:

  • Reduce development costs and time for materials discovery by exploring complex materials and processes in silico, prior to production efforts. For example:
    • Reduce product weight and improve strength by fine-tuning properties (e.g., hardness, elasticity) and designing better polymers, metal alloys and nanocomposites
    • Design strong, reliable coatings, adhesives, and lubricants by exploring the viscosity, chemical corrosion, binding properties, and thermal stability of hydrocarbons and polymers
    • Increase catalyst efficiency by predicting kinetic and thermodynamic properties, fine tuning activity and specificity, and exploring alternative synthesis pathways
    • Develop alternative energy sources such as fuel cells or batteries (learn more)
  • Reformulate your existing products to keep up with consumer trends, address inventory shortfalls, or meet new regulations
  • Improve production quality through automation of quality control. For example:
    • Qualify particle dispersions in materials such as nanocomposites, paints, pigments, and polymers with software that automates image analysis and reporting
    • Detect and identify impurities by combining analytical data, inventory, and manufacturing data in real-time reports
    • Improve control over manufacturing by integrating and tracking production control data from plants with analytical data from LIMS systems and online analytic devices
  • Meet government regulations by assessing environmental fate and chemical toxicity
  • Empower experimentalists with user-friendly, web-based computational workbenches that can be used to supplement lab work, pre-screen compounds (e.g. polymers), interpret analytical data (e.g. NMR), and manage experimental data (e.g. catalyst synthesis processes)
  • Complete R&D projects up to 10X faster by leveraging existing research workflows and automating the aggregation and processing of massive volumes of data from different silos on a single processing platform
  • Improve decision making with real-time reporting dashboards that provide centralized access to detailed experiment results and project status updates
