GKNJing Li, Methodology Engineer at GKN Aerospace, presenting at a Granta open seminar, outlined an enterprise project to implement the GRANTA MI system. The project is managing materials information for the Aerospace division, a major global Tier 1 supplier with products including aero structures, engine systems, and special products such as aircraft transparencies and ice protection systems.

The materials information management project includes support for the testing of GKN-owned materials and processes (managing the full lifecycle from test data, through statistical analysis, to design data, and into manufacturing) and an export control tagging policy for data transfer.

At the time of the seminar, the project had reached the first stage of global deployment, with users at the Filton site in the UK, and Trollhättan in Sweden managing test and design data.
