Materials Testing

When it comes to meeting the needs of a materials testing environment, most in-house developed and commercial laboratory systems will be pushed beyond their limit. This is because materials testing laboratories operate in highly diverse environments and their informatics solution must be robust with flexibility to support multiple laboratories and customer requirements.

Facing fierce competition and business pressures, materials testing organizations continue to look for ways to increase production throughput and accelerate time-to-market. Adding to these pressures are stringent regulations, ever increasing costs, and mountains of laboratory data. To maintain profitability and stay ahead of your competition, you must integrate the business environment around manufacturing, quality, compliance and operations to drive production efficiency in a cost effective and compliant fashion.
