Benchmarking

When benchmarking a process or material, the first step should be to define key properties. In order to do this, a clear understanding of the products use as well as in-situ structural and environmental conditions which the product may be exposed to is required.

Our experts can initiate a preliminary study to define these properties prior to starting a practical study. By doing this, the characteristics of generic products can to be mapped against the benchmarked characteristics outlined, allowing the generic products to be substituted. This is particularly useful when there are no standardized requirements in place.

The main benefit of this is that it allows for a wider range of products to be sourced without having any associated uncertainties and apprehensions about poor performance. This can lead to a more cost effective approach when sourcing and buying products.

An additional benefit is through streamlining and making processes more efficient, which subsequently leads to a reduction in both time and material waste.
