How Leading Aerospace Enterprises Use and Manage Materials Data
Learn from Lockheed Martin, Honeywell, and NASA

Previously Recorded on - Wednesday May 7, 2014 US ET New York: 11am | UK London: 4pm | Europe Paris: 5pm | US PCT San Francisco: 8am

Join speakers from Lockheed Martin, Honeywell, and NASA as they share how they have implemented effective workflows for the management and use of critical data on composites, alloys, and other materials. They will discuss the impact on materials engineering, design, simulation, and on making better materials decisions. Combining the right materials data with the right tools, such enterprises  can reduce cost and turnaround time in solving materials-related problems.

  • Learn how leading aerospace enterprises are making traceable materials information accessible directly within CAD, CAE, and PLM software
  • Understand how engineering enterprises are managing and integrating data from experiment and simulation, and applying it in materials engineering.
  • Hear how engineers are making better materials decisions, faster, overcoming challenges such as the need for substitution and material obsolescence.
  • Discover how your company can benefit from technology to manage the complete materials data lifecycle, developed with a leading industry collaborative project, the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC).

Learning from the Material Data Management Consortium

The Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC) is an aerospace industry collaboration that has defined best practice approaches to managing materials information and guided development of software tools to support these approaches.

Join this Webinar to hear from MDMC members. They will discuss how they have implemented systems to capture, analyze, control, and maintain all of their materials information, enabling, for example, the creation of fully-traceable design allowable data. Such materials data is expensive, yet many organizations do not treat it as a valuable resource. A recent survey of engineering enterprises found that as much as 20% of materials tests are duplicates; 50% of data is used once, then discarded; and engineers spend an average one hour per week just looking for materials data.

See how these challenges are being overcome, with authoritative materials information being delivered into the hands of engineers and product design teams, quickly and traceably, and within their routine workflows. You will also see how combining a controlled source of corporate materials data with the right tools can help in other areas—enabling more accurate and efficient design, providing traceable workflows for simulation and multi-scale modeling in ICME, and supporting decisions on materials selection and substitution.
