There has been considerable effort to develop an integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) framework. A relatively new concept of model-based material definitions has also emerged that can support a truly integrated, multi-disciplinary engineering capability. Prior literature has provided some initial background and guidance relative to establishing and utilizing a model-based materials definitions construct as part of seamless engineering workflow. This work further addresses and provides explanations of how materials and process model-based definitions are evolving and are being incorporated into workflows for interdisciplinary component design engineering optimization. Formalization of model-based material definition standards have the ability to change the way products are engineered and how software tools have the potential to change to meet this opportunity. Model-based material and process definitions have the ability to support rapid material and product certification and qualification, especially for those that are sensitive to manufacturing processing and exhibit inherent structure and mechanical property gradients.
