GRANTA MI for the enterprise
GRANTA MI is the leading system for enterprise materials information management. Create a single 'gold source' for your company's proprietary materials data, information, and related experience. Integrate with the best available quality materials reference information.
Your business can:
- Increase productivity: avoid hours wasted looking for materials information and unnecessary repeats of materials tests and analyses.
- Protect valuable materials IP and maximize its use: achieve zero data loss, avoid wasted investments, ensure the right people see the right information.
- Save costs and reduce time-to-market: multi-million dollar benefits for larger organziations.
- Reduce risks: avoid errors that can lead to delays, quality issues, or legal liabilities.
- Get more performance from products by ensuring that you use the best available materials data, information, and knowledge.
GRANTA MI is applied by many of the world's leading engineering organizations. Read case studies from General Motors, Molex, Rolls-Royce, Sulzer, Ethicon Surgical Care, Honeywell and more
Manage vital materials knowledge
Materials data, information, and knowledge can cause longer design cycles, more risk, and sub-optimal products. Why? Because it's time-consuming (sometimes impossible) for engineers to find the right materials data. Materials testing and subsequent analysis is complex, difficult, and expensive and the results are often lost or not shared effectively, leading to repeated work and use of inaccurate information. Materials data has its own lifecycle: it constantly changes with inputs from new tests, suppliers, or the field. And materials knowledge is often locked away in hard drives, on paper, on fileshares, or even in the heads of particular experts.
GRANTA MI has the answer:
The result: a single ‘gold source’ for corporate materials knowledge.
Implement a robust, reliable enterprise system
You need a system that you can trust with something as important as your corporate materials IP. In-house software projects usually prove expensive to maintain and struggle to cope with IT changes, updates to engineering software, or new end-user requirements. That's why leading engineering organizations now look to proven commercial software systems for this critical task, minimizing the risk of project delays or system failures during deployment. They also want a best-in-class solution, with reliable performance and able to manage restrictions such as export control.
GRANTA MI is a proven solution:
The result: support for everything from a team project to an enterprise system.
Empower the design and development process
Materials information needs to work for your organization, particuarly in the design and development process. Without a joined-up approach between materials engineering, CAD and CAE, mistakes can be made, and time can be lost in understanding design intent or predicting product behavior. Without integration of materials information into PLM, companies cannot get a consistent understanding of what materials they use and where, making innovation difficult and damaging time-to-market.
GRANTA MI is integrated:
The result: Product design and development based on material intelligence.
Reduce risk and make better decisions
Every choice of material carries risk. Whether through supply chain disruption, obsolescence, legislative non-compliance, or poor environmental image, the wrong choice can cost millions. We need a better understanding of our materials, substances, coatings, and formulations and how they contribute to this risk. And we need to enable materials decisions optimized for the strategic needs of the business—for example, helping designers to contribute to cost control by avoiding proliferation of materials or suppliers.
GRANTA MI enables smarter decision-making:
The result: Better, greener, safer products.
