Karcher Case Study
Accurate information about materials is part of the foundation for high-quality, reliable products. But with naming conventions between differentsuppliers often inconsistent or incomplete, finding and maintaining accurate materials data is difficult. Kärcher approves and purchases polymers from more than 100 materials suppliers, used in making 3,000products, so validating and managing materials properties data can be a convoluted and unwieldy process. Beginning with 1.5 million data points, Kärcher’s materials engineers used Granta MI to build comprehensive records about every polymer grade the company buys for 20 facilities worldwide.
