The ASME Materials Properties Database has been under development in the past few years to support the ASME Codes and Standards under the supervision of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Committee on Materials. With the guidance of its Working Group on Materials Database, the project has completed the Phase I development for the Data File Warehouse that offers a depository for various files containing ASME Code Week records, materials test data from codification inquiries, and information associated with code rules development. While the database is in operation, the development has continued into Phase II to create a relational Digital Database that offers customized and relational schemas with advanced software functionalities and tools facilitating digital data processing and management. This paper discusses the current status of the project including its development management, database components and features, business operation, and future growth. Some issues and prospective resolutions for meeting the needs and requirements from Codes and Standards are also discussed.
