Implementing GRANTA MI

Implementing GRANTA MI is straightforward, thanks to our years of experience in this sector

Our five-stage process helps to ensure a smooth transition from your existing materials set-up to GRANTA MI, including data migration and seamless integration with your platforms, workflows, and preferred engineering systems.

Using standard technologies and processes, our Services Team is ready to work with you to roll out a system in a matter of months.

GRANTA MI implementation process

Key capabilities

We can apply expertise from working on hundreds of materials information management implementations to ensure a smooth GRANTA MI project. Granta Services team competencies include:

  • Business case development – at project, department, or corporate level
  • Materials information survey (see below) – analyze your environment; specify the right solution and implementation plan
  • Project team support – identify and train relevant groups and stakeholders
  • Project management – helping you to plan and coordinate all aspects of the implementation
  • Installation support – getting you up-and-running, fast, and configuring to your requirements
  • Delivery – implement quick wins to prove the system, help you to transfer data, prepare for roll-out
  • Roll-out – advice, support, and end user training; monitor progress and adjust as appropriate
  • Evolution – learn lessons and plan the next phase, transferring expertise so you can be self-sufficient.

Material Intelligence Survey

A typical first step towards achieving ‘material intelligence’ for your organization is an analysis of your materials information environment. Granta experts can help you to do this through out standardized Material Intelligence Survey process, based on experience of dozens of materials information management implementations.

A survey can be conducted as part of developing the business case for a materials information management system.  Or it can be the first step in your implementation project, enabling you to specify the exact solution for your needs and to put together an implementation plan.

In either case, we can enable you to achieve your objectives quickly, with least effort, applying Granta’s knowledge of similar situations and problems. Granta’s materials information technology experts will visit your site and:

  • Apply our proprietary Material Intelligence Survey Kit™ to conduct detailed interviews, workshops, and process mapping sessions with stakeholders from management, key materials and engineering departments, IT, and other groups involved in the project
  • A key focus of the Survey is understanding use cases—how, and for what purpose do you need to use materials information?
  • Review in detail issues such as the key use cases and problems relating to materials data, the main types of data and how they are currently managed and maintained, the ideal workflows for materials data in your company, needs for integration with other business and engineering software, and constraints or requirements due to corporate systems and policies
  • Provide an Implementation Roadmap detailing a system that can meet your requirements and providing an outline plan for implementation.
