Rolls-Royce Implements “Gold Source” of Material Intelligence

Managing complex and valuable materials data with Granta MI Enterprise improves accuracy and reduces redesign

BUSINESS BENEFITS

“Certified savings from the project were over $10M per annum.” Amandeep Singh Mhay, Specialist – Materials Data, Rolls-Royce

Utilizing MI Enterprise, Rolls-Royce provides their civil, defense and nuclear businesses with a “Gold Source” for Material Intelligence. The integration inspired a goal toward zero data loss across the enterprise. The MI Enterprise system has reduced the need for duplicate mechanical testing while offering accurate and traceable data, and minimizing redesign. Ongoing work at Rolls-Royce includes extending the program into composite data management, reducing Restricted Substance risk and improving overall environmental impact.
