VMAP

A new Interface Standard for Integrated Virtual Material Modelling in Manufacturing Industry

Project description

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.
