Manufacturing has become much more complex than it was in the past. New designs are created every day, data flows during engineering processes are becoming huge and the number of engineers working together is growing. These improvements bring some challenges in tracing the data and managing the processes and workflows. A materials lifecycle management (MLM) system is a tool that focuses on capturing and managing data all the way from test data to the consumption of this data by CAE applications. It gives the ability to automate test processes, have complete traceability of all the data in the system, and it gives a very deep client integration. It ensures that engineers are using a consistent source of approved materials derived from traceable integrated processes. Furthermore, it is web-based and very easy to install. MLM eliminates a significant amount of tedious manual data management activities and gives engineers the ability to focus solely on innovations and new product designs.
