Materials management software upgraded

Cambridge-based software specialist Granta Design has announced the latest version of its GRANTA MI materials information management system.

Described as 'the most capable and robust yet', version 7 provides enhanced tools for engineers and product designers to better manage the materials data lifecycle.

Enhancements include a simplified web tool through which any authorised user can upload materials data, from anywhere.

Advances in graphing and querying have also been included, to help users compare data from different sources.

According to Granta, the software help users to build and maintain a single, controlled, traceable source for corporate materials data, to manage the lifecycle of every property in that database, and to ease the workflow from test results to approved design data.

"Version 7 enhances ease-of-use and interactivity, for example, during charting," said the company in a statement. "And it's now easy to configure a wizard user interface to provide engineers with guidance on materials choices based on their own company's business rules."

Version 7 incorporates Version 2.0 of Granta's MI:Materials Gateway technology, which enables users of CAD, CAE, and PLM to access and apply materials data directly within their host system.

This is said to provide a high level of integration for materials data with design, simulation, and product lifecycle management.

It makes also GRANTA MI a fully-embedded, consistent component across software from ANSYS, Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes, PTC, and Siemens PLM.
