Atomic Weapons Establishment Joins Materials Data Management Consortium

The Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC) is welcoming the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE plc) as its newest member.

AWE plc in the UK joins the MDMC to support and develop its current enterprise-wide materials information management system.

Fred Moran, a materials property engineer at AWE, said that the intention was to capture and deploy a wider range of diverse materials property information. This would then be made readily available in an easy-to-use environment.

“The long-term goal, supported by the use of the GRANTA MI software, is to develop the effectiveness of the standard internal system for delivery and accessibility of material property information and test data.”

The MDMC’s collaborative mission is to create software systems targeted on requirements of materials information management in aerospace, defense and energy industries.

The MDMC is credited with success in guiding development of the GRANTA MI software, released commercially in May 2005 through its developer, Granta Design Ltd (Cambridge, UK).

AWE will be formally welcomed at the MDMC's next meeting at Largo, Florida, on January 7-9, where plans for the MDMC's "Phase 2" will be launched.
