The relationships between process, structure, and property in materials provides one of the strongest paths for innovation. Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) has the potential to enable both further innovation and efficiency gains by allowing a deeper understanding of these relationships. This is be achieved by extending the focus of prediction beyond the performance of a material as a constant; to also encompass the performance of the component as a whole and to allow for the complex graduation of structures and properties within the components due to special variations of the processing. In this paper we argue that ICME is a challenge that can be addressed through a threefold emphasis on the “I” of integration, and highlight the role of metadata in making that possible: integration of test data with virtual data, integration of processes, structures, and properties, and integration of materials information (model inputs, synthesized material properties, or “real” materials properties) with the world of product development (CAD, CAE, PLM). To achieve this, this paper draws, in part, on the findings of the Material Data Management Consortium (MDMC). The Consortium enables leading engineering enterprises to collaborate on best practice approaches to managing critical materials data, with a recent focus on providing additional tools and traceable workflows for simulation and multi-scale modeling in ICME. Reference will also be made to other projects which are successfully integrating real test data management with predictions. For example, in the area of Additive Manufacturing, one collaborative project focuses on a comprehensive suite of integrated tools designed to improve the design, manufacturing and qualification of additive manufacturing parts. In addition, the paper will explore the role of test data for ICME, such as that found in the “Materials Data Laboratory™” and “Structural Materials Data Project” of ASM’s “Computational Materials Data Network”.
