Indicator of material's performance

Dealing with produced microstructural materials (such as metallic polycrystals, rubber, filled concrete, or belgium waffle) one can track down two dependencies:
Manufacturing -> model 1 -> Microstructure -> model 2-> Performance (effective properties)

The knowledge of these dependencies allows us to formulate the following control problem:

Choose the parameters of  Manifacturing  to achieve at desirable Performance.

The notion of the microstructure is a central point of this problem: It allows to collect the information of the material linking together manufacturing and performance.
