How MI:Test Data Management helps

Key Features
Problems Solved
GRANTA MI is the industry-standard for managing the full materials data lifecycle, with best-practice templates and tools for complex materials such as high-performance alloys, composites, welds, additively-manufactured parts. Fully integrated with a rich library of quality materials reference data.


Materials data can be complex
and difficult or expensive to obtain.

Data is captured directly from test machines or via controlled workflows. Workflows can also be used to ensure that data goes through the appropriate analysis and approvals.

Data is often lost, or ineffectively shared, causing tests to be repeated or design decisions to be made with incorrect information.

You can integrate tools for fast, effective analysis, data reduction, or material modelingfrom Granta, third parties, or in-house. GRANTA MI automatically captures and links related information, such as analysis results, raw test data, and materials pedigree: you can have full confidence in the data you are using.

Raw materials test data must be processed into design data or material models for simulation. Manual processing is prone to error and are often not auditable, limiting the value of the resulting data.

Design and deploy controlled workflows, e.g., for materials test requests and approvals, test program management, or supplier qualification.

Without an audit trail for the data used in design (who did what, when?) it can be hard to trace materials-related problems to their source and to improve the data for next time.

Any user can quickly find approved data for which they are authorized, including from directly within CAD and CAE systems. Access Control and Version Control ensure that data is securely managed with full traceability.

Design cycles are lengthened because designers can't find the right data, or use inaccurate or inappropriate values
