GRANTA MI:Server is the vital enabling technology for GRANTA MI.
MI:Server is a unique materials database system, explicitly designed to manage specialist materials and process information. MI:Server also includes the tools to manage and confgure the database. These tools, MI:Admin and MI:Server Manager are simple-to-use Wizard-based Windows application, that do not require extensive information technology expertise to operate.
How do you use MI:Server?
Install the database on a server for enterprise network or web access. You can then use the import, export, and editing tools of MI:Viewer and MI:Toolbox to populate and maintain the database with your organization's proprietary information. Alternatively, you can purchase data products from Granta and load them into the database. Or you can use GRANTA MI to host both internal data and external reference information. GRANTA MI provides a range of tools that can interact with MI:Server to manage and use this data resource.
What data can the system manage?
GRANTA MI databases are used to store technical, economic, and environmental materials information. Examples include:
- Data for materials testing, engineering design, and all points between—i.e., raw test data, reduced data, design data, specifications data
- Materials property references—a 'read only' option means GRANTA MI can, if desired, simply be used to provide convenient, shared access to such data
- Information for business decision support—e.g., databases of restricted substances or of your company's approved / preferred materials
