PICSCI in Corporate Research

Today, up to 60% of the cost of a product can be attributed to product development and R&D. Efforts to streamline and improve efficiency of this process can go straight to the bottom-line of an enterprise. Testing is an essential and costly component of product development. Engineers, scientists and their support staff conduct billions of dollars worth of experimental tests in their effort to develop new products. Because of the enormous diversity of experimentation, the resulting data is highly heterogeneous and is not easily captured in conventional databases. Efforts to do so have invariably failed with time with the inability of such systems to absorb new forms of experimentation (extensibility). Therefore, many companies today capture experimental data in Excel. This is a waste of time as highly paid staff adapt a software designed originally for financial analysis to complex tasks needed for engineering analysis. The failure to use properly structured databases to capture such data results in data attrition as poorly stored data gets lost over time.

With a PICSCI these heterogeneous groups can store, manage and collaborate all on a single secure system.

MDS Overview

The Matereality Material Data Server provides a single platform for the storage and deployment of any material properties of any materials. The system is designed for site-wide or enterprise-wide deployment so that users can access the information they need at their desktops directly over the intranet. All software is browser-based and requires no download to client computers. All common browsers are supported.

This technology permits enterprises to create an online resource that provides selective access to materials information at all levels within the organization: procurement, product engineering, manufacturing, quality, research and development.

Key features of the material data management system

System extensibility

Products today are made using a variety of materials. Matereality accommodates data ranging from stress-strain curves to viscosity, spectroscopy to fatigue, on materials ranging from metals to gels, and anything in between. A system that can store all the varied material data needed on all these different materials becomes a part of your core infrastructure and knowledge base.

Collaboration and Roles management

Each group within an enterprise has a need for different types of materials information. Store all this data in one place and deploy it seamlessly and selectively to each group: lot certification data, quality data, design properties, CAE material data, R&D data.

Connect up your test laboratories

New material properties are continuously being generated by your test laboratories. All these properties can be easily loaded into the system using a simple web-based interface. The entire context of the measurement is stored in TrueDigital format, sufficient to meet the stringent data reporting requirements of ISO 17025.
