CAMBRIDGE, UK, Feb 15, 2018 – Granta Design announced that AECC Commercial Aircraft Engines (AECC CAE) has selected the GRANTA MI software to meet its materials information management requirements. Headquartered in Shanghai, China, AECC CAE is engaged in the lifecycle development of the commercial aircraft engine, including research, design, manufacturing, testing, delivery, and maintenance, repair and operations (MRO).
Since 2009, AECC CAE has focused on the development of high-bypass-ratio turbofan jet engines and related technologies. In keeping with its commitment to using state-of-the-art tools and processes, the global OEM (original equipment manufacturer) will now use GRANTA MI to manage its test data, from both external and internal sources, through to simulation and design. The organization’s proprietary materials knowledge will be managed alongside comprehensive materials reference information, and appropriate data will be made accessible through its CAD, CAE, and product lifecycle management (PLM) systems, aiding traceability, data integrity, and quality.
Granta is the leading global provider of materials information management software to engineering enterprises in sectors including aerospace, automotive, electronics, and general manufacturing. Within aerospace, Granta works with most of the world’s leading aero engine manufacturers, and many other OEMs and suppliers. The GRANTA MI software enables such organizations to create a system in which they can capture all of their vital corporate materials information and make it available in a controlled manner to authorized users around the enterprise. To have a single, central source of high-quality materials data, and make it available to designers, is critical as it ensures full traceability and security of the data for use in certification, when required.
Richard Painter, vice president, business development at Granta Design, added: “We are very happy to welcome AECC CAE to our community of user organizations. By selecting GRANTA MI, AECC CAE will have access to the leading system for enterprise materials information management. Our software and associated resources enable organizations to ‘digitalize’ their materials information, ensuring accuracy and consistency, driving innovation, and reducing risk, time, and cost. We look forward to supporting AECC CAE in their mission to be a world-leader within the commercial aircraft industry.”
