With the explosion of material data and the large number of suppliers that OEMs work with, engineers are facing difficulties tracking material data. Companies need to know they can trust the material data they use in simulation, and trace it to its source. Losing data, or using wrong data is often the cause of delays and development cost increase.

Unlike other data management solutions, MaterialCenter is seamlessly integrated with simulation tools and is the ideal platform for multi-level material modeling. Using MaterialCenter, engineers can get full traceability across the supply chain, and ensure data will not ever be lost or misplaced.

MaterialCenter 2017 is extended with new CAE material model generation capabilities, additional client application integrations (such as Creo and CATIA), and material compare visualization tools. Improved Work Request Management systems also help organizations increase security by enforcing compliance while keeping projects on track.
