GRANTA MI Version 10

Version 10—removing barriers to the digitalization of materials knowledge

GRANTA MI Version 10 offers engineering enterprises complete control over how they collect and apply materials knowledge—and it removes major barriers to digitalizing this information across their organization. This major annual release rolls up the upgrades and updates from the past 12 months, adds further enhancements, and delivers these capabilities to all GRANTA MI customers.

Highlights of Version 10 include:

  • New MI:Workflow empowers collection and control of materials information and processes enterprise-wide
  • Enhanced and expanded support for CAE model generation and deployment
  • Extended apps for searching and plotting data and a new look and feel for MI:Viewer
  • A streamlined installation experience and tools to better understand system users and their needs.

Manage materials information and also the processes required to ensure that information is requested, collected, approved, and released in a controlled, traceable manner. The new MI:Workflow enables users to implement to-do lists, notifications, approval sequences, and moderation queues, as well as creating an audit trail. The simple user interface of forms and task-based actions removes a major barrier to the digitalization of materials processes.   Support the needs of diverse user groups involved in simulation with the latest version of the MI:Explore app. This simple-to-use web app is designed to enable quick, task-specific access to data. It is now faster and it enables more intuitive searching of materials information, easy export to CAE, file upload and download, and the comparison and exploration of complex graphical data. New reporting tools make it easier than ever to capture and re-use valuable materials knowledge.

Integrate seamlessly with your product lifecycle management and product design environments with MI:Materials Gateway. Version 5 of this powerful app is the fastest and most capable integration yet, enabling improved interoperability and consistency from CAD to CAE, with material choices made in CAD now easily accessed in the CAE environment. Other enhancements give users more control over material models to help optimize design.

  Use an updated package which enables you to apply the proven best practice data structures of the MI:Additive Manufacturing template to capture all of your AM property and process data. You can then use MI:Mat Analyzer to help you understand the vital relationships between materials, properties, and process parameters.
