Industrial Standard for Data Transfer
Transfer of material and design data along the virtual manufacturing chain is the essence for data driven design process. This is now a key to many of the digitalization projects running across various industrial domains, many of which are now associated with VMAP Standards Community.
The first VMAP User Meeting plans to bring together the various R&D&I projects which are using and extending the VMAP standard. There are many fields of engineering which are trying to incorporate VMAP standard, and the user meeting will be a first get-together to know and understand the needs and requirements from various domains.
We would like to invite engineers, researchers, developers, closely working with the VMAP standard, VMAP SC and working group members and ITEA representatives & PAs to join the meeting and present their projects and ideas for VMAP standard & VMAP SC. We are looking forward to contributions from various domains and multiple use cases showcasing the current limitation and expected benefits from the standard, software solutions and code adaptations and other standardization activities in the relevant domains. Some presentations will also focus on the ongoing developments including but not limited to sensor data storage, full model storage, material data transfer in additive manufacturing processes.
The goal of this meeting is to identify the new areas and requirements for VMAP and jointly agree on the course of further development of the standard. This event will also mark as one of the first public events after the establishment of the VMAP SC as a not-for-profit association. The association members will also discuss ideas for new R&D&I projects and extension of the standard in further application areas.
