Aras Teams up with VCollab to Boost Management of Simulation Results
Aras will use the VCollab technology in Simulation Process & Data Management (SPDM) processes across the lifecycle.
February 12, 2019
Aras has established 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.
“VCollab’s tool-independent, multidisciplinary visualization capabilities are really well-aligned with our open approach and full lifecycle perspective,” says Malcolm Panthaki, VP of Analysis Solutions at Aras. “Using VCollab’s capabilities in our SPDM provides market leading automation to make simulation results accessible to everyone across the enterprise through dynamic reports, while reducing cycle times and redundant administrative tasks for the simulation analyst.”
“Our high-performance web-deployed visualization, powerful data mining and automated report generation with dynamic 3-D content make key CAE results accessible to everyone on the Aras platform,” says Prasad Mandava, co-founder and CEO of VCollab. “By combining Aras’ highly scalable platform with our ultra-fast post processing of large CAE files, global companies can further improve simulation throughput and analyst productivity.”
