Halving the Number of Prototype Materials and Tests Using Ansys Granta MI During Model-based Development
Granta MI provided the database foundation for Honda Motors to explore the use of material informatics to predict prototype material properties. The following features were key to a successful engineering solution:
- Using Granta MI created a centrally managed hub for materials information accessible across Honda Motors, with administrators able to limit the data viewing, input and export ranges according to team responsibility and expertise.
- Features such as automatic creation of input templates, search and export with complex conditions and batch modification of data were important to adapt the use of Granta MI across the wider business.
- Granta MI simplifies data collection, selection and format integration for data cleansing, a prerequisite for using machine learning for material informatics.
