End-to-end materials management platform selected to drive innovative and high quality product development.
July 30, 2019
MSC Software, a provider of information technologies has been selected by Airbus Group, an aerospace manufacturer, as part of their digital transformation, to reduce development lead time by implementing an end-to-end materials management platform, MaterialCenter. Airbus intends to provide access to one single material raw data database for Airbus Group and across its divisions.
MaterialCenter provides a complete solution for the current and future needs of aerospace materials data and process management. Designed to manage the complete materials workflow as the single point of entry for all materials related activities, it guarantees that engineers use a consistent source of approved materials derived from traceable integrated processes, resulting in improved simulation fidelity, reduced data loss and elimination of manual data management activities.
MaterialCenter is highly scalable and suited to support the large number of users and the big amount of data generated and used by Airbus to engineer metallic and composite systems.
“We are extremely proud that MaterialCenter has been selected by Airbus as the End-to-End Materials Management Platform for the Group. We are looking forward to a strong, long-term partnership with Airbus as we implement and deploy MaterialCenter across the group. This will enable an effective and efficient use of materials and materials data to drive innovative and high quality product development,” says Roger A. Assaker, CEO of e-Xstream engineering and chief materials strategist of MSC Software.
MaterialCenter is part of a comprehensive 10x Materials Solution that covers (virtual) material development, (virtual) materials testing, standard and advanced (multi-scale) material modeling serving all the major finite element analysis software, effect of manufacturing (e.g., additive manufacturing (AM), automatic fiber placement (AM), effect of defects, digital continuity and material-centric digital twin, artificial intelligence, compliance and sustainability.
