Currently, development of materials from concept to product is both capital- and time-intensive. Computational Materials Design is one of the techniques starting to get used to accelerate designing materials from atoms or condensed matter that when synthesized exhibits targeted properties at the systems level. As one of the earliest proponents and adopters of using Materials Design for bringing materials to prototyping faster, we have identified several gaps that are being addressed. This involves development and application of theory, simulations, and experiments. Although there is enormous potential for using computer-based design in materials and chemistry, we demonstrate both the challenges and the opportunities to cross the last mile for real time applications. We will also touch upon President’s Materials Genome initiative, consistent with our own earlier efforts, which was launched nationwide to get materials to manufacturing faster.
