NCS has had a major breakthrough within the automotive segment in the recent years. As a colour management platform, NCS helps to manage colour from initial design to production and colour reproduction. Automotive companies worldwide are one of many industries supported by NCS to secure colour conformity of different materials and to make sure that the colour as decided is reached.
The latest step in the field is an extensive study made by NCS Colour together with one of the biggest car brands on the market. The aim of the study was to create a unique colour gamut for each critical material in the car brand's interior while also making sure that the pigment requirements are met by global suppliers.
The interior designers are now supported by the result as they now know in advance if a colour for future interiors is possible to produce in all the designated materials. This helps the designer to avoid pitfalls in the colour development process and to shorten the time to market while minimising the time spent in-house by making the right colour decisions early in the colour development process.
NCS provides a good starting point by allowing the designer to see colours in the whole visual colour space while further being able to analyse their own colour collection, competitor's colour collections, make quantitative customer surveys, create new colour collections and create colour combinations quickly and rationally. As the approved colours need to be handled in the best possible way to secure that technicians, engineers, purchasers and quality managers are able to perform their responsibilities in a professional manner, NCS supports in managing the colour in the process from idea to reality, on any material, by providing clear specifications, colour masters and other tools for this part of the process. These tools can also be used towards suppliers and subcontractors.
