Material efficiency is a description or metric which expresses the degree in which raw materials are consumed, incorporated, or wasted, as compared to previous measures in construction / manufacturing projects or physical processes.  Making a usable item out of thinner stock than a prior version increases the material efficiency of the manufacturing process.  (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Material_efficiency)

This is an index-based search using 'Material efficiency' as the searched string. Please note that for some items this may result in less relevant search results. The 'directly mapped' search might generate less search results, but more relevant search results.
