Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) seeks to apply computational methods at multiple length scales, validating and applying results to understand/improve materials performance and inform business and research investments.
Simulation methods are applied in support of each other, to study and predict processes, structure, and properties of materials and to gain insight faster, reducing reliance on expensive, time consuming experimentation. Such approaches are often enhanced through the interaction of both commercial and open source solutions and there is an increasing focus on the benefits of Open Innovation and international collaboration.
In this paper, we review the progress of several international collaborations seeking to bring greater standardization to the field and offering mainstream access to the tools, data and expertise required. In particular, we explore the important role that the robust management of computational data will play in the effective deployment of ICME systems in support of business decision making.
