Session 2: Applications of SPDM in Aircraft Structural Analysis at Embraer.
For finite element analysis (FEA) of a structure such as an aircraft, the model needs to be decomposed so each team can concentrate on its specialized domain — the fuselage, wings, or control surfaces — with the appropriate level of details.
Simulation processes used to analyze these design changes are composed of chained applications that generate a sea of digital information. It's not feasible to manually keep track of the connections among all the digital artifacts generated.
However, you can effectively manage the cascading changes and the dependencies using the Simulation Process and Data Management (SPDM). Tune in to hear about the proven strategies deployed at Embraer to:
- Increase simulation throughput
- Improve data traceability
- Standardize and automate the simulation processes.
