Granta Design Ltd. (Cambridge, UK) has released GRANTA MI Version 8.1, software for managing complex, valuable, strategic materials knowledge in engineering enterprises. New features include easy web app control over user groups and support for workflows, such as composites qualification. GRANTA MI enables an enterprise to manage all of its materials data (e.g., from testing, research, QA or design), all inter-relationships between those data and any supporting information. A key feature is access control for different user groups; for example, design teams only see data relevant to specifying materials in design, or project data remains within organizational boundaries. This is said to protect intellectual property, ensures regulatory compliance and improves usability. Granta also reports that it is also easier to get data into a GRANTA MI database. The MI:Explore web app interface now supports upload and editing of data, including drag-and-drop for images. More users can contribute data and more data entry workflows can be supported. A new multi-step importer capability also is said to make it easier to get complex data into the system.
