The VMAP analytics project is a follow-up of the VMAP project also under the ITEA umbrella. This project is mainly driven by the Swedish partner, SWERIM AB, which is a metal research institute based in Luleå, Sweden.
This project mainly focusses on the integration of experimental data within the VMAP Standard and development of the process ontologies to build meaningful connections between the virtual and the simulation domains. The execution of data analytics to provide better correlation techniques is also part of the project scope.
The vision of VMAP analytics is to enable the realisation of smart Digital Twins for materials and manufacturing design tasks. The VMAP analytics 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. Together, the interface standard and open ontology will enable broad use of semantic search and artificial intelligence methods in these classical engineering disciplines.
