Materials optimization and knowledge management

Materials technology has become the driver of innovation. It enables differentiation through superior products on the market. The practical and computer-aided design of materials (ICME – Integrated Computational Materials Engineering) is of outstanding importance here. The systematic use of existing data and knowledge remains an important basis and success factor.

EDA stands for the next generation material data system based on open standards and supports:

  • Materials innovation: computer-aided design and optimization of metallic structural materials     
  • Robust processes: Identification of analytical limits for the stabilization of products and manufacturing processes     
  • Material data management: combination of material data from different sources (reference databases, material testing, material simulation)    
  • Simulation:  Consistent material cards for CAE calculations (data compression, consolidation, modeling)    
  • Knowledge Management: Integration of data and knowledge with advanced wiki systems and full-text search     
  • Scalability: From groupware for a few users to the ability to be integrated into enterprise IT environments of large companies

Interactive work with the next generation of material data management

This workshop gives an overview of the possibilities of EDA – at the same time the easy use of the system can be experienced in practical exercises.

New reference databases as a focus:     

  • Aerospace materials data based on MMPDS (Metallic Materials Properties Development and Standardization). As licensee of Battelle / USA, we will offer this unique source for statistically validated design data for metallic materials in aviation from Q1 / 2019. Of course, our extended database is multilingual (currently German / English) and available in metric units.     
  • The leading steel database in Europe StahlDat SX is also available as a multi-language system in EDA

Participants and target audiance

  • Customers who already use EDA today and want to discuss new possibilities with us     
  • JMatPro users who want to get in touch with the advanced ICME capabilities of EDA     
  • Decision-makers and material experts looking for new solution

Max. number of participants: 15 – registration required
