A new interface standard for integrated virtual material modelling in manufacturing industry

Currently, the exchange of local material information in a computer-aided engineering (cae) software workflow is not standardised and raises a lot of manual and case-by-case implementation efforts and costs. For a holistic design of manufacturing processes and product functionality, the knowledge of the detailed and local material behaviour is required. The project vmap therefore aims to gain a common understanding and interoperable definitions for virtual material models in cae and to establish an open and vendor-neutral ‘material data exchange interface standard’ community which will carry on the standardisation efforts into the future.
