With European carmaker PSA Peugeot Citroën bringing to market two brands – Peugeot and Citroën – each with their own line-ups and clearly differentiated styles, it required software to support its materials information management requirements.
Automotive enterprises like PSA Peugeot Citroën need accurate, up to date data on materials (such as metals, plastics, and composites) in order make the right design engineering and material decisions.
To help it solve this challenge of developing and managing such large amounts of complex and specialist data, it needed the right materials information management partner.
“Granta demonstrated extensive experience of the practical implementation of materials databases for large engineering enterprises,” comments Louis David, materials chief expert at PSA Peugeot Citroën.
“With a proven solution, plus the track-record and services to support a fast deployment, Granta was able to meet our short-term needs, especially for the data required for modelling. Granta also offers technology, tools, and an open approach that can support future extension of the project.”
The decision to select GRANTA MI is part of PSA Peugeot Citroën’s project to replace legacy systems for materials information at the company and to extend the benefits of managing this vital engineering data to more groups within the company.
A key focus of its deployment will be on delivering reliable, traceable materials data for input to simulation and analysis.
