Any digital file, including simulation files, can be managed in ANSYS EKM. When files are added to the ANSYS EKM repository, the metadata or user properties are automatically extracted from supported ANSYS simulation files. This metadata is used to search and retrieve the files as well as to create simulation detail and comparison reports. Data mining allows you to extract and share results from the simulation files. The configuration management supports version and revision control. The pedigree tracking function helps you to understand the implicit and explicit dependency in an intuitive, visual way.
