Materials Data System

Materials Technology with Passion

Materials are the key enabler for innovative and resource efficient products. Matplus experts develop industrial material technologies - from the idea to the finished semi-finished product – as part of their daily work. Their successful operations rely on advanced systems for material simulation and material property databases – which are now available also for customers: EDA® the leading solution for materials engineering and beyond.

EDA® enables seamless integration of data management, modelling and knowledge management.


More than Material Reference Data

Material Optimization

Explorative data analysis of JMatPro® calculations and materials testing

Test Data Management

Consolidate and evaluate demanding test data from different sources

Material Models

Create and fit models for Plasticity, Fatigue, Damage – ready to be used in CAE downstream applications

Knowledge Management

Integrate reference data, own test data, documents and reports to your “single source of enterprise materials knowledge

Designed for Materials Engineering

EDA® was designed to support and accelerate materials engineering processes. The core is a flexible and extendable data management in combination with configurable rich functionality for processing, evaluation and visualization of data. It is the cloud-enabled end-to-end solution for the entire lifecycle of materials information. Interfaces to test machines, CAE- and CAD systems and other enterprise software can be configured.

How Can EDA® help you to generate business value?


Test Data and Material Models

EDA covers the entire workflow from test data to parametrization of different constitutive equations, e.g. for plasticity models. Such material models can then be exported to CAE downstream applications, like Abaqus, LS-Dyna and more.


High Throughput Calculations

High Throughput Calculations using EDA® in combination with JMatPro® and Matcalc® can be used to invent new alloys, to stabilize production processes, to find the most robust variant within the wide span of a materials designation, etc.

EDA® is the future

proof next generation system - on premises and in the cloud


EDA® stores all data in an industry standard data format (JSON) – no proprietary formats


EDA® is a scalable solution using state-of-the-art micro-services (Docker) for integration into any environment


EDA® uses mature, free and open source software components – designed to be extended by customers

Selected features and properties are:

Import and export of data from different sources, e.g. xls, csv, JSON

Visualization through 2D / 3D graphics, tabular comparisons
