Overview

No matter what industry you are in, your products are made of materials. Learn directly from leading materials experts from companies as diverse as Honeywell Aerospace, fashion Burberry and energy Saudi Aramco, who will present best practices for materials substitution and how to avoid increased costs and product launch delays caused by using sub-optimal materials.

How often do you specify the same material for a new application? It's easiest, and understandable, for engineers to rely on materials that they understand well. But, what if it's not good enough, how do you step outside your material and process comfort zone with confidence??

Discover an encyclopedia of materials property data and desktop tools to quickly evaluate all your options, from the world of materials to your company's preferred materials. We'll take a look at how to check and validate materials choices, before you commit to a design. Empower innovation in your products through smarter materials decisions.

The speakers have various levels of expertise with CES Selector and very diverse material issues to solve, showing that whatever the industry, from day one and for a long time it's crucial to start using the right tools to make smarter material choices.

Speakers

John Perek, Principal Engineer, Materials Engineering, Honeywell Aerospace

John is a principle engineer in the Materials Engineering group at Honeywell Aerospace in Tempe, Arizona. We design valves, actuators, air turbine starters, missile actuation systems and rocket motor thrust vector controls. I support products from the proposal stage through design concept, production and field support, including failure analysis. I graduated from the University of Toronto with my Bachelors and Masters in Metallurgical Engineering and Materials Science.

Richard Waudby, Engineer, Materials & Manufacturing, Burberry

Richard Waudby is a Raw Materials Engineer at Burberry. He received a Master's from the University of Sheffield in Materials Science and Engineering in 2011. After graduating, he worked at VTT Oy, Finland, in the Tribology group led by Prof. Kenneth Holmberg. He now works on coating process development and modern manufacturing methods at Burberry.

Thibault Villette, Leader, Material Modeling Group, Saudi Aramco

Thibault is Material Modeling Group Leader at Saudi Aramco. His team investigates material behaviors and predict material properties using theoretical and computational methods predicting the properties of materials and designing materials with the right properties if and when necessary. Thibault has been using CES Selector since the end of February 2018.

Charlie Bream, Senior Product Manager, Granta Design

Charlie is the Senior Product Manager for CES Selector at Granta Design. After completing his PhD on recycling of thermoset composites at Brunel University, he spent 15 years in industry working on the development of lightweight materials and structures for British Aerospace (Space Systems), Pera International, and NXT before joining Granta in 2007.
