“Global financial benefits have been certified at approximately $10m per annum in time saved, optimization and reduced waste.” Amandeep Singh Mhay – Specialist, Materials Data, Rolls-Royce
Rolls-Royce is a pre-eminent engineering company focused on world-class power and propulsion systems.
Rolls-Royce faced challenges including large quantities of legacy data scattered across sources, and the management of complex workflows to capture, analyze, and use new data generated by testing, QA, and research. Without a systematic approach, tests were duplicated and 40% of all generated test data was not re-used after initial analysis.
Another key issue was traceability – the objective of ensuring that the pedigree of every material and the data behind every engineering decision was easily available. Having fast, reliable access to all relevant materials information is also important for Rolls-Royce engineers who need accurate and statistically-valid property data as they seek to push materials to their limits in a highly-regulated, safety-conscious environment.
Globally 2000+ engineers use Granta MI Enterprise as a “single source” for verified materials information accessible. The use of Restricted Substances Module for fast assessment of risk regulation changes for vital materials and processes. Members of Granta’s Environmental Materials Information Technology (EMIT) consortium to find practical solutions to regulatory challenges.
- Certified savings of $10m per annum through time saved, optimization and waste reduction.
- Creation of a globally accessible and controlled “gold source” of materials information.
- Improvements in traceability maximizing the value from critical materials IP.
- Improved rates of test data re-use, reducing waste.
- Helping the materials team meet regulatory requirements on restricted substances.
