Granta Design (Cambridge, U.K.) is emphasizing its services designed to help engineering organizations manage, analyze and apply critical data on materials and processes. Granta helps develop tools and information resources that overcome the particular challenges of working with composites material and process information. Using Granta software, the user can manage and use composite information from testing, quality assurance, research and design, allowing the user to combine proprietary composite data with trusted reference data (e.g., CMH-17, NCAMP, AGATE) and analysis tools (e.g., STAT-17). Engineers focused on lightweight design can make better decisions in product design and development, as well as predicting performance of novel materials and structures.
