EMIT Meeting Open Session:
Solutions to Materials, Environmental, and Regulatory Risks

The Environmental Materials Information Technology (EMIT) Consortium is a collaborative project (members include Boeing, Airbus Defence and Space, Emerson Electric, Airbus Helicopters, Honeywell, NASA, NPL, Rolls-Royce, Thales, and United Technologies Corporation) that develops and applies information technology solutions to enable product design and development in the context of environmental objectives and regulations.

At an Open Seminar in March 2014, hosted by the UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the EMIT member who provides the Consoritum’s Secretariat, members were joined by manufacturing organizations, material producers, aerospace and defense companies, automotive manufactures, and others concerned about mitigating environmental and regulatory risk. The meeting providing extended opportunities for discussion, centered on two case studies presented by member organizations....
