Materials Data Management
using EDA®

EDA is a flexible information system for materials technology. The system enables seamless integration of data management, knowledge management and modeling. 


EDA supports the following processes: 

  • Capturing and processing of materials data: reading, compressing, filtering parametric data from different sources     
  • Modeling: Creation and maintenance of model libraries as well as curve fitting and parameterization even with complex data     
  • Knowledge management: setup, maintenance, release of structured documents with connected data     
  • Material Optimization: summarizing and analyzing JMatPro calculations

EDA meets the requirements for an independent, expandable and sustainable system:     

  • Data storage in a system-independent format (JSON)  in a scalable database (Mongodb)
  • Use of mature, free and open source software components     
  • Integrated visualization, modeling and reporting

EDA is a state-of-the-art web application that can be used on the intranet via standard web browsers. The system can be installed and used both locally and centrally.

Selected features and properties are :    

  • Import and export of data from different sources, e.g. xls, csv, JSON     
  • Visualization through 2D / 3D graphics, tabular comparisons     
  • Unit conversion, unit-neutral storage of content     
  • Support for complex data types, such as multidimensional fields     
  • Free definition of different views on the data     
  • Multilingualism at all levels (metadata and data content)
  • Advanced technical wiki system with equations (MathJax), data integration, bibliographies     
  • Integrated management of bibliographies    
  • Import and full-text indexing of files, e.g. PDF and Office, using Elasticsearch
  • Reportwriting with configurable templates in LaTEX quality     
  • Extensibility in the Python language, use of all scientific-technical Python libraries
