Defining key properties should be the first step when benchmarking a process or material. This requires an in-depth knowledge and clear understanding about the product, its use and any in-situ structural or environmental conditions, the product may be exposed to.
Our experts will conduct a preliminary study to define these properties before performing a practical study. This enables the material or process characteristics to be benchmarked and generic products utilized when standard requirements do not exist.
Typically, this allows a wider range of products to be sourced and removes any uncertainties about poor performance. This can also result in a more cost-effective approach when sourcing and buying products.
Additionally, processes can become more efficient, which subsequently leads to a reduction in both time and material waste.
