At Granta Design, we are the materials information technology experts. We help many of the world's leading engineering enterprises to increase productivity in their management and use of critical materials information, to reduce risk and enable innovation during product design, and to make efficient use of materials and related resources.Our GRANTA MI software is the leading system for managing specialist data on metals, composites, plastics, and other engineering materials. We integrate and apply information on engineering, economic, and environmental properties. The system includes tools for analyzing materials test data to create high quality design data; for materials selection, substitution, and cost optimization; and for assessing and mitigating risk due to restricted substance and other environmental regulations. Through our GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway technology, these data and tools can be fully integrated into your PLM environment. This means that designers and engineers, operating within their regular engineering software, can access accurate, controlled materials and process data and apply tools that use that data to guide key design decisions.Granta was founded in 1994 as a spin-off from the work of Professors Mike Ashby and David Cebon at the University of Cambridge. Today, we are leaders in our field, working with organizations such as Boeing, Emerson Electric, EADS Eurocopter, GE, Honeywell, NASA, Raytheon, Rolls-Royce, and TRW Automotive.
