Material Intelligence Survey

Assess and plan for your material information management needs

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 you 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.
