How to efficiently solve the materials data management challenge.

Reliable materials data – when and where you need it


Simple tools make it easy to import and manage new information from suppliers. Create and control a source of approved data, ensuring it retains full traceability.

Design and simulation teams need the right materials data as input. That is why many leading engineering enterprises implement Ansys Granta MI for enterprise-wide materials information management. But what if an organization wants to get started quickly, with a focused solution?

Ansys Granta MI Pro makes it easy to build a materials database that combines company-approved proprietary data with valuable reference data from Ansys Granta. The database is accessible through embedded apps in NXTM or Creo® CAD or Ansys Workbench® CAE. Engineers can search materials and assign to their CAD or CAE model in just a few clicks. They can also use a web app to access more detailed property data, reviewing and comparing materials before assignment. Additional benefits include:

  • Apply the associated data using density data for weight roll-ups in CAD or complex materials models to support advanced simulations.
  • Easily reapply assignments made in CAD into CAE.
  • Save time and avoid inconsistent data use.
  • Guarantee that the right materials models are used every time.
