Aras, the leader in open product lifecycle management (PLM) software for the enterprise, today announced a partnership with Visual Collaboration Technologies (VCollab) for simulation visualization, post processing, and reporting. Aras will use the VCollab technology in Simulation Process & Data Management (SPDM) processes across the lifecycle.
Enabling simulation results automatically in the product configuration – including variants and options – provides a closed-loop for traceability to reduce physical testing, verify requirements, and improve design-space exploration. Aras views better tool chaining and data management of simulation results as foundational to Digital Thread enablement and strategic initiatives such as additive manufacturing, generative design, and Digital Twin simulation.
VCollab reads simulation results from a wide variety of formats and makes them available for visualization and analysis purposes. With Aras’ SPDM capabilities and VCollab working together, simulation experts can better perform cross-discipline analysis, analyze results, and create reports that include 3D content.
