NICE DCV and EnginFrame are used extensively by engineers and designers in the automotive and aerospace industries, providing access to run powerful distributed simulation applications such as CFD and FEA software from Ansys, Siemens, Open Foam, Abaqus and many other vendors, all from within a web browser. NICE productivity tools are used to handle aerodynamic simulations, structural analysis, NVH simulations, thermal transfer, combustion and simulations for next generation drive trains used in hybrid and electric vehicles.

With EnginFrame, running distributed workloads and managing the associated data is easy, using an intuitive web form to submit workloads to the cluster or the cloud, instead of having to use a complex command line script. Visualisation of the simulation output is made possible with DCV, providing powerful 3D graphics capabilities to display even the most complex 3d models in real time with very low latency and adaptive bandwidth management.

Benefits of NICE DCV Remote Desktops for CAE in Automotive/Aerospace:

  1. Access to high-performance computing resources: Remote desktops allow engineers and designers to access powerful computing resources, such as high-end CPUs and GPUs, which are typically not available on their local machines. This can significantly speed up simulations and other computationally-intensive tasks, such as CFD and FEA, which are commonly used in the automotive and aerospace industries.
  2. Collaboration: Remote desktops enable engineers and designers to work together on the same project from different locations, which can be particularly useful for geographically dispersed teams. This allows for seamless communication and collaboration, even when team members are not in the same physical location.
  3. Flexibility: Remote desktops allow engineers and designers to work from anywhere, as long as they have an internet connection. This can be particularly beneficial for companies with employees working remotely or traveling frequently, giving them the ability to access their work and resources from anywhere.
  4. Cost savings: Using remote desktops can help companies save on hardware and maintenance costs, as they do not need to purchase and maintain expensive workstations for each engineer or designer. This can result in significant cost savings over time.
  5. Security: Remote desktop can help to increase security by providing centralized control and management of data and software. This allows for better management and protection of sensitive data and intellectual property.
  6. Scalability: Remote desktop technology allows for easy and quick scalability, as more resources can be added as needed. This is particularly useful for companies that experience rapid growth or need to handle large workloads, as it allows them to scale their resources up or down as needed.
