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.
See tabs at left to learn more about IHS Engineering Solutions for Standards Management, Engineering & Technical Reference, Analytical & Problem-solving Tools, and accessing Internal Knowledge.
Effectively manage internal and industry standards across the enterprise
Today’s complex engineering environments demand a new level of engineering excellence that hinges on having ready access to trusted engineering knowledge, standards and specifications. Industry studies suggest that more than 40% of an engineer’s time is spent just gathering information, instead of applying that knowledge to value-added activities.
IHS standards management solutions uniquely help companies:
Providing single-source access to trusted, authoritative technical reference
When engineers have access to trusted, authoritative reference content from leading publishers, they make decisions faster and with the confidence that they are using industry best practices. IHS offers engineers, researchers, scientists and related professionals single-point access to the essential technical content needed at each stage of the project lifecycle. With IHS Knowledge Collections, engineers get precise answers from more than 100 million documents drawn from validated content sources — across industries and fields of science.
