The clever combination of simulation and intelligent material selection makes design much more efficient
Early knowledge of the optimum material is crucial
Anyone who manufactures or designs products makes decisions for or against certain materials at an early stage, which have an impact on the entire product life cycle. To minimize cost and maximize product effectiveness, you need to get these decisions right. So, from the company's point of view, it is important to support the generation of materials expertise and make it available to development teams.
Strategic advantage materials expertise
In many areas, the choice of material is the innovation driver for optimization. The material determines the limits of construction mechanics. Whereas for many thousands of years only naturally occurring and easily accessible materials were used, today composites, for example, considerably enrich the range of materials available.

Virtual gold mine
In the digital age, knowledge about materials is becoming even more important as the range of materials is increasing daily and development cycles are becoming shorter and shorter. The answer to this challenge is to systematically manage and apply the available information with intelligent software. If this is successful, a virtual gold mine is created for the respective company.
The basis for success is the corresponding experience in dealing with material knowledge and the reliability of the information. Ansys Granta has a more than 20-year success story that has produced extremely sophisticated materials software tools. CADFEM is the suitable integration partner to open up the potential of simulation and materials expertise for you.
What is the value of materials data management?
Granta Design and its materials information technology helps organizations in industry sectors such as aerospace, energy, automotive, medical devices, and general manufacturing to optimize their management and to utilize critical materials and process data.
Watch how Granta saves time and cost in product development, reduces risk, complies with regulations, and enhance innovation.
