Data generated on your Simulation empowers your company regardless of size and process. Manufacturing and Design companies nowadays rely heavily on simulation results to help make informed business decisions. Expanding simulation environment of tools, data, and processes is becoming more and more important.
Companies’ best leverage with simulation results: these data needs to be integrated with enterprises’ overall product development environment. This has become a challenge for companies of all sizes as their simulation data has increased in size and complexity by orders of magnitude as more simulations are performed over time. We need to stop the struggle and transform this data into better products. Simulation data management processes and workflows do exist.
Here are our top five key data management best practices:
1. Provide a more collaborative environment
Ensure that information handled by multiple teams remains up to date. By creating visibility among different levels of users, your teams avoid redundant efforts and improve communication between departments working on the same project simultaneously.
2. Improve traceability of design validation
Address the 5W’s of the workflow: Who did the simulation, what simulation was done, when was the simulation done, where did the simulation data originate and why was the simulation done.
3. Increase Data Security
Monitor and control any information coming in or going out of the simulation workflow, such an environment ensures proprietary and intellectual simulation data is organized and secure.
4. Eliminate barriers between various groups / departments
Simulation workflows and methods can be shared across cross functional departments so any user anywhere can access simulation data anytime.
5. Enabling improved assessment of risks and informed decisions
Companies today rely on simulation results as the basis for business decisions. Managed simulation data can be a competitive advantage but unmanaged data can become a huge liability.
The success of this five-step approach is highly dependent upon using a CAD-integrated simulation environment that leverages the data management system to bridge the gap between managing CAD files and simulation data.
SOLIDWORKS EPDM integrates SOLIDWORKS Simulation data into a single environment where simulation files can be managed for different model and analysis versions.
ATE believes that SOLIDWORKS customers who are using these tools have implemented workflows that tie into the main engineering workflow; and outstandingly see great outcomes on their results!
