Advances in material intelligence for Automotive

This webinar on Tuesday, April 5 will cover the latest technology advances and news about how the Automotive industry is developing best practices for managing and applying materials information. A central role in this process is played by the Automotive Material Intelligence Consortium (AutoMatIC), with members including General Motors, PSA Peugeot Citroen, and Jaguar Land Rover.

Hear about the latest work of this project, see new developments in the software being used by members, and learn how this technology can be used to:

  • Reduce time-to-market through more streamlined engineering process
  • Support CAE and simulation with accurate, controlled input data about materials
  • Increase standardization when making materials-related decisions, particularly in the context of PLM and other engineering software.

Further information

Materials information is critical for the Automotive sector because so many engineers need access to the right materials data, in the right format. They need it for applications including simulation, materials selection, design, quality assurance, substitution projects, environmental assessments, and more. Automotive organizations also need to keep up with a rapidly-evolving materials landscape, understanding and applying innovations in areas such as higher-strength steels and composite materials. Good materials data and effective materials decisions are essential in optimizing product designs for the supply chain and the needs of global manufacturing organizations, and for initiatives in 'lightweighting' and emissions reduction.

Who should join the web seminar?

This session will be of particular interest to:

  • Anyone interested in materials information management in the Automotive sector
  • Anyone interested in joining AutoMatIC.
