Material Intelligence for PLM and CAD

Join our webinar on Thursday, July 16, to discover how Granta's applications, running within leading CAD and PLM systems, provide integrated, traceable access to corporate materials knowledge, together with tools to apply it.

You will see how this benefits engineers, managers, and costing, environmental, or other specialists when they make design decisions, review individual products, or report across product families.


    Reviewing the Windchill Bill of Materials in MI:Materials Gateway.
  • Find out how to access and use accurate, up-to-date materials data in computer-aided design (CAD), and directly within product lifecycle management (PLM)
  • Learn how to assess the extent of materials risks—act on the results of “where used?” investigations across multiple product models
  • Discover the latest tools (e.g., to search materials data, select materials, report on restricted substance risk, or enable eco-design). Includes Version 3.1 with enhanced interoperability between CAD and CAE
  • Watch a demonstration of these capabilities and the latest GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway integrations for CAD and PLM

There is a previous web seminar in which CAE integrations will be covered in detail.

Who should join the web seminar?

This session will be of particular interest to:

Managers of CAD and PLM systems who want to ensure consistency and control in the use of materials information across their organization while saving time and money.

Users of CAD and PLM systems who need approved corporate materials information within their routine workflows.

Materials and process specialists who want to learn how they can deploy materials data quickly and reliably for use in CAD and PLM systems across their company, ensuring use of accurate, approved data.
