One of the biggest advantages of SPDM and Multibody Dynamics (MBD) integration is automated simulation process. When the simulation process ends, SPDM acts as a central data repository and stores all the output in databases. Moreover, it automatically compares all the results it stored before and creates a set of data which shows the comparison results.
In Summa Innovation hosted a virtual session on MSC Software's SimManager. Expert Keith Dunlop gave a tour through the SPDM environment. He showed why Data Management is so important for companies and engineers working together. How to use this to improve working with many CAE simulations and on different projects.

Simulation and analysis (S&A) are not known for its simplicity. It has traditionally been the domain of experts. The problems they encounter are theoretically complex, and the software used reflects this complexity.
If you capture a product’s configuration correctly, you have context―which enables you to create traceability. In essence you have created the Digital Twin time machine. The context of the Digital Twin, supported by digital thread data, and analysis tools like simulation or analytics, allows you to move backwards and forwards for any product or system of products.
For simulation to have a broader financial impact on an enterprise, SPDM must be deployed seamlessly within the broader enterprise, especially as required to support implementations of Digital Threads and Digital Twins. This webinar will explore how these platform concepts can advance the use and impact of analysis and simulation in the coming decade.
The democratization of simulation and design optimization is proving to be an increasingly important goal as enterprises realize that greater collaboration can lead to significant advancements – and ultimately position an enterprise as the innovative leader in their industry.
Simulation has often been disconnected from the rest of the development process, struggling with traceability and the ability to provide meaningful feedback in a timely manner. Watch this demonstration as it shows how a user of the Aras Innovator digital thread platform can use simulation to evaluate the performance of a design as it progresses, and how the results of simulations are tied back to Requirements to do closed-loop Verification and Validation at every stage of the product lifecycle.
“We believe that simulation is crucial to developing tomorrow's next generation products, and that better data and process management of simulations are needed to enable the digital processes of the future that will support these products,” Peter Schroer . "We see ANSYS and the Aras partnership as a potential game changer to connect simulation to technical processes for traceability, access and reuse throughout the product lifecycle. "
