KE-chain integrates with the new VMAP standard various simulation software in a workflow

Today’s best products are all designed with an integrated approach to development and manufacturing processes. Ideally, all data on material properties and behavior is available throughout the workflow. However, so far, many different interfaces and systems have hindered the use of material data across the entire workflow. Together with 30 international partners we have joined forces to change that in the ITEA3 project VMAP – Virtual Material Modeling in Manufacturing project. With the VMAP standard, we were able to integrate various simulation software into a workflow with KE-chain. Bastiaan Beijer was involved in this as an expert of the KE-chain platform and is happy to tell us more about the project.
