Ten tips for speeding up your material selection process


When working on products there are a host of challenges related to the choice of materials. These challenges range from identifying the best material for a new product, and creating material cards for simulation packages, through to convincing stakeholders that the material you are recommending is better than other options. But with 10,000s of different materials on the market – a number that is ever increasing – how do you even begin to evaluate these options?

In this webinar, we’ll show how the CES Selector software streamlines the material selection process by quickly and effectively identifying the most appropriate option for your application, enabling smart materials choices, and changing the way you work with colleagues and suppliers on materials issues.

What you will learn

  • Learn how to meet the 10 most common material selection challenges
  • Speed up the process of comparing, selecting and validating materials options
  • Inform discussion on materials with colleagues and suppliers, and enhance your internal and external relationships
  • Justify your choice of material to stakeholders
  • Watch a live demonstration of the materials data, visualization and comparison tools in CES Selector.

Who should take part?

Material specialists, product engineers, product designers, researchers and developers, and innovation groups.

About CES Selector

CES Selector is different. It combines a unique range of materials data with specialist tools to help you solve real materials problems. It has been improved and optimized for more than twenty years to deal with the subtleties of material selection. The 2018 version continues this tradition. It makes specific data and tool enhancements that help solve tricky materials problems, like how to filter materials based on combinations of materials properties, or how to factor-in weldability. These details make the real difference. Arrange a demonstration to see what we mean.
