Many companies have already introduced digital twins. However, if producers of advanced materials and complex parts need a more detailed look into the ongoing manufacturing processes and changing material properties, they will not find solutions today. The vision of VMAP analytics is to enable the realisation of smart Digital Twins for materials and manufacturing design tasks. The VMAP interface standard will open the initial VMAP standard for multi-scale models, sensor and measurement data, and information from production machines. VMAP analytics will provide an open ontology for engineering processes in materials and manufacturing design.
