Joins us for an ANSYS Webinar

Automating Material and Manufacturing Cost Estimation at the Concept Phase Using Intelligent Materials Selection

May 14, 2020

10:00 AM (EDT) / 2:00 PM (GMT)




When making decisions between different design concepts, you must consider performance, price and the environment. This difficult task often requires input from many experts who must make a hard decision at the end of the project.

Making changes later in the design process can be very costly and time-consuming, so any tool that can help early in the design phase has a massive impact on development projects.

In this webinar, we will demonstrate how Ansys GRANTA Selector can help make these choices in a more rational way, saving time and money for both material selection and production methods.

Flanders Make, a specialist research center, has spent 3 years automating this process from CAD to extend the benefits of part cost estimation from a component to a system level. The process also determines the total cost for different design concepts in a uniform and comparable way.

Ansys Elite Partner Infinite Simulation Systems supported the production of this webinar.

What you will learn

  • How to innovate through material selection and reduce component cost
  • How to quickly confirm and validate your material selection using a reliable, impartial data set
  • How to automate this process at the CAD stage for full cost estimation of components and systems

Who should attend

  • Analysts, product designers and development teams in any industry where materials selection is a regular challenge
  • Purchasing and materials sourcing professionals
  • Manufacturers of medium-to-high-end products, components and intermediate parts.
