Granta Designs Extends GRANTA MI Capabilities

A new, Web-based app lets users locate specific material applications.

Granta Design has added new capabilities to its GRANTA MI materials information management system. With a new Web application, users can figure out where certain materials are used.

With the app, designers can select a material from their GRANTA MI database and search their PLM (product lifecycle management) system to find out what existing products or parts already contain that material.

In addition to the new material usage app, Granta has extended support for Siemens PLM Software Teamcenter users. Now, designers can bulk author materials information from GRANTA MI into the Teamcenter Integrated Materials Management (IMM) data model.

“We’re pleased to provide new tools and, in partnership with Siemens PLM, a new option to author materials data into PLM,” says Arthur Fairfull, director of Materials Strategy and PLM at Granta. “Enterprises have varying strategies for materials knowledge provision to CAD, PLM and their product development process. These features help to support all customers in this area, whatever approach they choose.”
