Software service audits composite qualification

Written by: Caroline Hayes | Published:
Software and supporting service from Granta Design audits composites for traceability and qualification.




Software and an accompanying service from Granta Design supports a rigorous, auditable composite qualification process, particularly for where data traceability is required.

Software tools for capturing, processing, and reporting on composite data have been added to the existing Granta MI:Composites software package. The software package was developed with input from leading aerospace companies, based on the industry-leading Granta MImaterials information management platform. It manages all of the valuable, but complex, data associated with composite materials, i.e. lay-up, cure cycle, directional properties, and the properties and history of their constituent parts. New qualification tools help with key tasks in the composite qualification process, such as defining a test program, or importing data from test machines to a central database. These tools are available via a new service for Granta clients.

This Composites Qualification Service configures a Granta MI:Composites software package for an organisation's specific needs. For example, data import tools can be set up so that they automatically process data from a specific test machine. OEMs can use the service to build a system that makes it faster and easier to define test programs and to capture, analyse, and use their results. As well as a systematic, documented process, from test request to design allowable, they reduce errors and delays and protect vital corporate intellectual property. All of the data generated during qualification, and its vital inter-relationships, are captured, enabling full traceability, and future re-use.
