Material Efficiency

Material efficiency is a description or metric which expresses the degree in which usage of raw materials, construction projects or physical processes are used or carried out in a manner which consumes, incorporates, or wastes less of a given material compared to previous measures. Making a usable item out of thinner stock than a prior version increases the material efficiency of the manufacturing process.

The term Material efficiency can also signify the degree in which a material can handle a particular load, strain or weight upon it.
