Frequently Asked Questions

SPDM, or Simulation Process and Data Management, is crucial in Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) as it efficiently handles the large volume of data generated by simulations. CAE is vital for rapid product development and cost reduction by minimizing physical prototyping/testing. However, CAE's diverse operations pose challenges in simulation volume, accuracy, speed, and cost. SPDM is designed to manage this simulation data and processes effectively.

SPDM systems are purpose-built for managing simulation data and processes, such as Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics, which are increasingly popular. The rising data volumes demand efficient management for quick answers to design questions and streamlined product development. SPDM systems benefit companies of all sizes by saving time and resources in the design and development process.

Many manufacturing companies use Simulation Process and Data Management (SPDM) to stay competitive. SPDM enhances productivity, reduces errors, and provides insights into the engineering cycle. It stores and traces all simulation data, facilitating "what if" studies. Centralizing compute capacity and licenses leads to significant IT cost savings. Users like BMW and Audi have reported substantial savings in preprocessing, post-processing, and human effort. Integrating SPDM with simulations offers value by increasing efficiency, reducing errors, and ensuring data certainty in engineering workflows for design and production.
