Material information and how it’s managed can have a profound effect on your product’s lifecycle, and materials data management often plays a role in the success of the product. Many of today’s innovative designs owe their success to the revolutionary use and discovery of new materials – from lightweight mobile telephones and tablets to electric vehicles, to advanced aircraft, to green energy equipment (wind turbines, solar, etc.), to medical devices.
