Interface to PLM & EKM
Increases in computational power and storage capabilities encourage an even wider adoption of engineering simulation. The value of this, however, can be limited if the wealth of engineering data is not properly handled. A relevant data management system that is well integrated with engineering software and operates within a hardware environment that allows remote and controlled access provides significant ROI on both hardware and simulation costs. Data management tools include engineering knowledge management (EKM), process data management (PDM) or product lifecycle management (PLM).
