Accelerating Polyolefin Product Development Using Informatics and Modeling Tools
The Informatics initiative in ExxonMobil Chemical Company began over a decade ago with the initiation of the Symyx Research Alliance. Over the years, the application of these tools has grown beyond the realm of high-throughput experimentation, creating opportunities for digital prototyping, thereby accelerating the pace of new product development. As new scientific knowledge management strategies were adopted, additional tools and capabilities were implemented that enabled and expanded the scope and impact of the platform. This presentation describes the evolution of the ExxonMobil Chemical Informatics strategy, and provides an example of how the tools can be applied to reduce product development cycle times.
