This article discusses process simulation applications such as casting, powder metallurgy, machining, surface engineering, heat treatment, and joining. The implementation of modeling and simulation tools requires accurate descriptions of material properties and process boundary conditions. The article describes the role of input data and boundary conditions for process simulations. It provides information on the critical enablers of computational materials engineering, such as the computational speed, computational materials engineering software/hardware supply chain, and cost structure for virtual versus physical manufacturing and analysis.
