Key benefits

Create a single, consistent source for corporate materials data

Save time and avoid error with fast, easy access in CAD, CAE, or PLM

Get the right data on assignment, e.g., to enable simulations or generate drawings

Analyze where materials are used in products to prioritize work and support impact analyses

Make it easy to update materials, with common assignment and reporting across CAD and PLM

Avoid delays and inconsistencies by linking the material datasets used in CAD and CAE

GRANTA MI:Product Engineering Package

The GRANTA MI:Product Engineering Package integrates a single, centrally managed and approved source of materials data into the product design and development process. Materials are referenced throughout the product lifecycle, e.g., within CAD, PLM, and CAE tools. These references can come from many different sources, risking inconsistencies and making change control difficult. With GRANTA MI you can ensure consistency and control. From initial assignment, using our apps with CAD or PLM, to choosing full material models for CAE, you access the right data, fast, and can be confident that it is always traceable to its source.
