VMAP Project Kick-off Meeting: October 25 2017 | Sankt Augustin, Germany

Work on the VMAP project (A New Interface Standard for Integrated Virtual Material Modeling in Manufacturing Industry) got underway with a kick-off meeting at Schloss Birlinghoven on October, 24th and 25th, 2017. The aim of the research and development work is to define and establish software standards in virtual engineering workflows for the manufacturing industry. Currently, incompatible interfaces for the transfer of virtual material information require extensive manual adjustments. This causes loss of information and delays in the entire design process.

“We want to enhance simulation tools that have been incompatible with each other in terms of material parameters. In this way, it will be much easier to exchange relevant physical material sizes,” explained project coordinator Klaus Wolf (Head of the Business Area Multiphysics at Fraunhofer SCAI). The project, therefore, aims for an open standardization of material interfaces.

All partners from Belgium, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland attended and started planning the work to be done so that virtual product design will profit from the progress made in the project with new market opportunities opening up for software vendors and IT service providers through simplified software integration.
