COMPOSELECTOR H2020 project proposes to develop a Business Decision Support System (BDSS), which integrates materials modelling, business tools and databases into a single workflow to support the complex decision process involved in the selection and design of polymer-matrix composites (PMCs) by means of an open integration platform which enables interoperability and information management of materials models and data and connects a “rich” materials modelling layer with industry standard business process models. Material and process models, software integration and along with archiving of data and metadata are presented here in the context of “multiscale” models. The presented application case exhibits how advanced selection and design process could be handled using the proposed approach. The application case is translated into a workflow consisting of materials modelling and materials data components using the materials modelling data (MODA) template extended to include process models. This defines on a high level the requirements regarding input data, materials models and their coupling and linking, and the post-processing of raw data in order to arrive at the key performances needed.

   

The developed BDSS proposes to integrate material and process modelling, business tools and databases into a single workflow to support the complex decision process involved in the selection and design of polymer-matrix composites by means of an open integration platform which enables interoperability and information management of materials models and data and connects a “rich” materials modelling layer with industry standard business process models. The BDSS is built on three “pillar” technologies : 1- Materials and Process Modelling; 2. Business Decision System and 3. Data Integration
