Analysis and simulation solutions from IBM have helped deliver high quality products through computer-aided engineering, while managing development costs and time to market
It can help in quantifying the robustness of a vehicle design and gain insight into the most likely behavior of an automobile—before the vehicle is built
Research and development
Meets business strategy in a cost-efficient and scalable manner
integrate operations , with end-to-end analysis and simulation solutions
offers a solution portfolio covering all aspects of the vehicle—from design to manufacture
IBM has a unique consulting group called Virtual Product Innovation focused on automotive design that can perform the first step of a large implementation
Through visualization applications , analysis and simulation solutions from IBM an advanced approach to building prototype cars,has resulted in:
Reduce the need for physical prototype testing
Identify design flaws earlier in the manufacturing cycle, reducing time-to-market and warranty costs
Accurately predict the stresses and deformations experienced by metal to determine failure points.
Predict collision behavior and the effects on occupants—resulting in safer car designs.
Simulate the squeaks and rattles , eliminating problems before they become major warranty issues.
Consider ergonomics and comfort to create an enjoyable driving experience.
Reduce the weight of the vehicle by selecting optimum materials.
Enable digital product development and manufacturing to promote innovation .
Previous approach using wind-tunnel tests were ten times more expensive than hardware for simulation.
Improved system performance
increase personnel efficiency
The Financial Advantage Reduce costs, improve turnaround time
Decrease Analysis time so the assessment could be completed during the early design phase.
Maintain your competitive position through continual innovation and rapid implementation of new products.
Save on material costs without reducing the integrity of your products
AN IBM HARDWARE SOLUTION DRIVES HYUNDAI EGYPT TO IMPROVED PERFORMANCE OF ITS ERP APPLICATION
Customer: Hyundai Egypt
Deployment Country: Egypt
Business need: Hyundai Egypt needed to renovate its server infrastructure because its third-party servers frequently crashed while loading critical software applications.
Moved its ERP application and database server onto two logical partitions (LPARs) running on a new IBM System p5 570 server
Additionally, a robust storage area network was created using IBM SAN Switches, an IBM System Storage DS4700 device and IBM Total Storage Productivity Center for Data software
Benefits • Improved system performance • Includes a disaster recovery solution data—an additional level of protection that Hyundai Egypt previously lacked • Helps increase personnel efficiency, as employees no longer have to repeat work that was lost as a result of hardware instability problems
