The Business Case for Material Intelligence
The impact of materials information on productivity, innovation, cost and risk in the engineering enterprise
If your organization makes or designs products, it uses materials. Information about these materials is vital, often with multi-million dollar impact. In other areas of product engineering, digital transformation is already highly embedded – for example, CAE, CAD and CAM are now ‘must haves’ for every manufacturing enterprise. Software technology to manage and effectively apply materials information had lagged behind – but this is changing, rapidly. In this white paper, we explore why this is, with materials information management increasingly established as a core engineering technology. Includes extensive case study and return on investment information.
