Vehicle Emissions Reduction and Lightweighting:
The Implications for Materials Information Technology

Granta for AutomotiveThe legal requirements on exhaust emissions and fuel economy—as well as growing consumer demand for more efficient vehicles—are causing a step change in the way automotive companies are thinking about engineering and materials. With these changes come new requirements and challenges in the way information relating to these materials flows within and between automotive organizations, and in how this information is applied.

The last decade has also seen the emergence of best practices and fit-for-purpose commercial software to manage materials information and use it to support the needs of different user communities within an engineering enterprise, including Materials & Process teams, Design, Computer-Aided Engineering, and Purchasing Groups.

This Guide discusses some specific industry challenges relating to vehicle emissions reduction and lightweighting, and discusses how Materials Information Technology—comprising software tools, data and best practices—can be a critical enabling technology during this period of industry change.
