ANSYS Granta has published a new white paper reviewing the impact of materials information on productivity, innovation, cost, and risk in the engineering enterprise. It includes cases study information from leading engineering enterprises including Rolls-Royce, Molex, GM, Ethicon Surgical Care, PSA Peugeot Citroen, and Boeing.
If your organization makes or designs products, it uses materials. Information about these materials is vital, often with multi-million dollar impact. In other areas of product engineering, digital transformation is already highly embedded – for example, CAE, CAD, and CAM are now ‘must haves’ for every manufacturing enterprise. Software technology to manage and effectively apply materials information had lagged behind – but this is changing, rapidly. The white paper explores why this is, with materials information management increasingly established as a core engineering technology.
Readers can review practical examples and learn about potential returns on investment in areas including materials data management, support for simulation, ensuring consistent data across corporate PLM, additive manufacturing, and reducing restricted substance risk.
