Material Management

Material Management

We empower you to design innovative products with the material in mind.

As products across all global industries become more alike in terms of design and performance, companies are crossing the next frontier of product innovation: material design and engineering. Many of today’s innovative designs succeed because of their discovery and revolutionary use of new materials, including products from a wide array of sectors, from lightweight mobile telephones and tablets to electric vehicles, advanced aircraft, green energy equipment (wind turbines, solar, etc.) and medical devices.

Managing material data and integrating it with product design is critical to validating and optimizing the iterative development of complex products. Developing new materials and newer applications for existing materials to apply to product design is critical for stepping up the pace of innovation.

Our material management solution helps you manage material data information. The solution links the life cycle of your material data with the life cycle of your product (PLM) to transform the material data into true product intelligence, so you can make smarter decisions about materials.

Accompanying services, including workshops—from implementation to hosting or fully managed services—ensure you get the most effective solution based on your needs.

Key Applications

Author Material data

Formulate new materials, organize laboratory tests and documentation, derive high quality material data for description and simulation and integrate material catalogs.

Assign material data

Use the material data in almost any CAD tool or assign it to a product structure in a BOM management tool.

Trace material assignments

Automatically derive mass roll ups, validate BOMs and parts against the material release status, sustainability, compliance or supply risk. Understand where critical or obsolete materials are applied.

Leverage material data for Simulation and Analysis

Use material information for purchasing, price estimates and for all kinds of simulations.
