The new software tool Simulation, Process, Data & Resources Manager (SPDRM) provides a simple and intuitive way to capture, deploy, manage and improve CAE process work flows by integrating the resources, the tools and the data associated with these. SPDRM couples with the enterprise PDM system and integrates CAE into higher level business processes by delivering CAE tasks and associated data to analysts, engineers, designers, suppliers and managers.
SPDRM provides secure storage, version and access control for all CAE data. It can import existing access control rules from both LDAP and Active Directory, and is compatible with major enterprise database software.
Scalability in work flow build-up
SPDRM allow for seamless integration of an entire organization from individual engineers to work groups, departments and suppliers, and all work flow actors. This utilizes engineering knowledge and expertise from across the organization.
Work flow improvement
SPDRM run-time process visualization and monitoring tools provide valuable information about work flow’s current state. Real-time intervention allows the user to alter the process at execution time in order to reduce stoppage. Process “profiling” tools allow engineers and managers to identify work flow bottlenecks and reduce the total duration of the process.
