Moen Incorporated, part of Fortune Brands Home & Hardware, has embedded Granta’s software in its product design approach. New or redesigned products and components are examined to evaluate material and manufacturing alternatives.
Dr. Tim O’Brien, Vice President for Technical Innovation at Fortune Brands Home & Hardware described the use of Granta software at a seminar in Milwaukee, WI. The report from this presentation explains: “Whenever [Dr O’Brien] approaches a materials problem, he always has a few materials options in mind, but Selector usually suggests additional options. Past applications have included a component redesign that cut production costs in half and doubled performance on an important product line.”
