Every day, engineers and other technical professionals rely on a wide range of knowledge to improve operational performance, reduce risk, and drive innovation.
Companies have spent millions on information management systems to capture information needed by engineers, scientists and researchers. Yet technical professionals are still drowning in a sea of internal and external content, little of it organized in a way that helps them drive productivity or innovation. Worse, some of the best information in those systems is never found by the engineers that need it most.
IHS helps organizations accelerate productivity, improve problem solving and innovate ahead of competition by giving engineers and other technical professionals access to relevant knowledge – inside and outside the organization – and advanced research and problem-solving tools.

One of the world’s premier semiconductor companies increased the number of cross references in its parts database from 100,000 to nearly 2 million. In doing so, the company boosted results of its parts with the lowest searches by 52 percent and helped its customers find alternatives for obsolete parts so they can avoid the need to redesign products.Learn More About Our Customers Success
It is said that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. Do you believe this? I do not. Having once endured a 15-hour non-stop plane ride to Hong Kong back in coach, watching our flight path in between showings of Planet of the Apes and Rush Hour II, I can verify that this long-h
I recently received a set of bearings (rolling element) for an application in one of my machines from a very reliable source that I had been procuring from for over a few years. However, on inspection the outer race of the bearings were seen to have patterns/shading (but no indentations) that seeme
